Powershell: get free disk space from computers listed in text file. using Job

Purpose: This script will search a list of computers and report their c drives total and free space into a text file that can be imported into excel.

This is my first time using jobs to speed up the process of gathering the info so there could be a better way of doing this but this seems to work just fine.

#Get free disk space code from here.

$Global:Servers = Get-Content "C:\temp\computers.txt"
$Global:ReportPath = "C:\temp\freediskspace.txt"

$scriptblock = {
    $ConvertToGB = (1024 * 1024 * 1024)
       $pingResult = Test-Connection -count 1 -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue $server | select IPV4Address
       $disk = Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName $Server -Filter "DeviceID='C:'" | Select-Object Size,FreeSpace
       $values = @()
            if( $Error -like "*Access is denied*"){
                return ($server+",,AccessDenied")
            return ($server+",,")
       $values += ($Server + "," + ($disk.Size / $ConvertToGB) + "," + ($disk.FreeSpace / $ConvertToGB) )
       return $values

function getdata{
    $jobs = Get-Job | ? { $_.State -eq "Completed" }
     foreach( $job in $jobs){
        $results = Receive-Job $job
       Add-Content $ReportPath $results
        Remove-Job $job

Add-Content $ReportPath "Server,Total,Free"
foreach($server in $Servers){
     while( (Get-Job).count -ge 50 ){
            sleep -Seconds 1

     Start-Job -ScriptBlock $scriptblock -ArgumentList $server

while( (get-job).count -ne 0 ){
      sleep -Seconds 1

  1. Table games like blackjack and roulette are low volatility and take longer to play. Even in a web-based on line casino, want to} play at a reside desk as each 1xbet spin of the wheel or dealing of playing cards takes somewhat longer when it's carried out bodily. And using up further seconds contributes to creating your bankroll final.
