Have you ever thought of clearing contents of a file from a command line? There is a PowerShell cmdlet you can use to clear contents of a file. Here are the examples:
To clear contents of a file:
- Clear-Content C:\Temp\TestFile.txt
To clear contents of all files with the “.TXT” file extension:
- Clear-Content -path * -filter *.TXT –force
Note: “Clear-Content” just clears the contents of a file. It doesn’t delete the file.
