DESCRIPTION
The Start-Transcript cmdlet creates a record of all or part of a Windows PowerShell session in a text file. The transcript includes all command that the user types and all output that appears on the console.
PARAMETERS
-Append [<SwitchParameter>] Adds the new transcript to the end of an existing file. Use the Path parameter to specify the file. Required? false Position? named Default value Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -Force [<SwitchParameter>] Allows the cmdlet to append the transcript to an existing read-only file. When used on a read-only file, the cmdlet changes the file permission to read-write. Even using the Force parameter, the cmdlet cannot override security restrictions. Required? false Position? named Default value Accept pipeline input? false Accept wildcard characters? false -NoClobber [<SwitchParameter>] Will not overwrite (replace the contents) of an existing file.

If any of the directories in the path do not exist, the command fails.
