Convert string to date and time in PowerShell

Sometimes, the output of a command will include date and time information as a system.string, but you need it in a true datetime format.  Simple solution.

In this case the queueTime property of my $objItem object is a system.string.



Just use the [datetime] accelerator to convert the string to datetime object

Want to take it a step further?  Want to format that datetime?

"{0:MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss}" -f [datetime]$objItem.queueTime
