PowerShell Samples - Creating Folder Structure from CSV file


Please note that the CSV file must be encoded in UTF-8 to support special characters.

This sample creates a Group Folder structure from a CSV file.


$csv = Import-Csv "c:\YourFolder\GroupFolder.csv"


foreach ($csvEntry in $csv) {

    $groupName = $csvEntry.Name


 # Extract the group folder name

 if ($groupName.Contains("\")) {

            $groupName = $groupName.Substring($groupName.LastIndexOf("\"), $groupName.Length - $groupName.LastIndexOf("\"))

            $groupName = $groupName.TrimStart("\")



 # Create the group folder if it is not null, empty or fill in with space characters

 if (![string]::IsNullOrWhiteSpace($groupName)) {

     $session = New-RDMSession -Type "Group" -Name $groupName

     $session.Group = $csvEntry.Name

     Set-RDMSession $session

     Write-Host "Group Folder $groupName created" -f Yellow






The CSV file must have only one column with the title set as Name.

The full path must be specified for each sub folder.
