Next partition

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

I also need to generate a partition number for Mount-VHD

Similar idea but use the Win32_DiskPartition class

function get-nextpartition {            
$disk = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_DiskPartition |            
sort Index -Descending |            
select -First 1 -Property Index            
$nextindex = ($disk.Index) + 1            

The Index is an integer so we only need to add 1
