I just add the property "ParentName" to each object output by get-nasnapshot, then add that property in my list of stuff to display with select.

Love it!

Occasionally our NDMP backups have problems because of problems with our backup servers. Sometimes they leave NDMP snapshots behind. This provides a quick and easy way to see all the snaphots



Great script. How would you change it so that it was just one line per volume showing volume name, volume size, total snapshot size, freespace, and maybe even de-dupe recovered space?
