Updated: April 27, 2016

Applies To: Windows PowerShell

Specifies an action that restores the data of a resource that has been compacted, to its original state. This field is introduced in Windows PowerShell 2.0.

Namespace:   System.Management.Automation
Assembly:  System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)

literal String^ Expand

Field Value

Type: System::String^

This verb is paired with Compress. For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use a verb such as Explode for this action.

The verb portion of a cmdlet name specifies the action that is taken by the cmdlet and is specified by the Cmdlet attribute. For more information about the declaration syntax that is used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.

For more information about the guidelines for selecting verb names, see Approved Verbs for Windows PowerShell Commands.

The following example shows how this field is used in the Cmdlet attribute:

[Cmdlet(VerbsData.Expand, "Data")]
public class ExpandDataCommand : Cmdlet
