PowerShell One Liner for Count of all Documents in SharePoint 2010 Farm

Last week I had a client reach out to me asking for a count of all documents in their SharePoint 2010 internal farm. They are planning on implementing Metalogix StoragePoint and were working on estimates for the deployment.

After a bit of work with PowerShell I was able to throw together a single line of PowerShell that sum’s the entire environment for me.

  1. this was very helpful! Thanks!!

  2. Hi , I was wondering if it will count all the documents in the document library and also within the folder inside the document library

    • Raj, this is the ItemCount that the SharePoint API is presenting, this should include all items inside of it including the items within the folders. I do not have a SharePoint farm available to test this in anymore though.
