Removing Secure Copy

From the Windows® Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
Click Remove. A message box prompts you for confirmation.

After removal is complete, Secure Copy will have been removed from your system. Note that the installation directory that contained Secure Copy remains after the process is complete. This directory contains the license file for the product and any files created after the product was installed. These may be deleted manually if you wish to completely remove Secure Copy.

PowerShell cmdlets

Microsoft® Windows PowerShell® is a Windows® command-line shell and scripting language designed specifically for system administrators and built on top of the Microsoft .NET Framework. Secure Copy® supports the use of PowerShell cmdlets.


What are cmdlets?

Windows PowerShell® has the concept of cmdlets. A cmdlet is a simple, single-function command that manipulates objects and is designed to be used in combination with other cmdlets.

If you already had Windows PowerShell installed on your computer before you installed Secure Copy®, the Secure Copy cmdlets were automatically installed and registered with Windows PowerShell.

The examples in this section show you leverage the cmdlets available in Secure Copy. These cmdlets allow you to perform some of the functions of Secure Copy in an automation environment. The cmdlets also can be of great use in any environment where a repetitive process involving Secure Copy is needed.

The complete set of Secure Copy PowerShell cmdlets is as follows.


Starting a copy job


Removing a copy job


Running the File System Statistics Analyzer

NOTE: All cmdlets should be run while logged on as an Administrator. The Secure Copy cmdlets should be used only by those familiar with Windows PowerShell.
