I prepared the powershell script for you. Try it:

$mediaLibriary = Get-Item "/sitecore/media library"
$mediafoldersTemplates = "Media folder", "Node"

$root = $mediaLibriary.Children
$table = @()

foreach($rItem in $root){
    if($mediafoldersTemplates -contains $rItem.TemplateName){
        $table += ProcessChildren -item $rItem

$table  | Format-Table -AutoSize

function ProcessChildren($item)
    $contOfFolders = 0
    $contOfImages = 0

    $children = $item.Children

    $result = @()
    $tempTable = @()
    foreach($chItem in $children){
        if($mediafoldersTemplates -contains $chItem.TemplateName)
            $tempTable += ProcessChildren -item $chItem

    $objAverage = New-Object System.Object
    $objAverage | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -Name Name -Value $item.Name
    $objAverage | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -Name FolderCount -Value $contOfFolders
    $objAverage | Add-Member -type NoteProperty -Name ItemCount -Value $contOfImages

    $result += $objAverage
    $result += $tempTable

    return $result

You can upgrade the mediafoldersTemplates variable in the script with a template names that you consider are folder's templates.

  • Hi, The code you provided is working as expected. Thanks Dec 15, 2017 at 13:43

    As a matter of preference, I like to create new objects using the syntax $average = [pscustomobject]@{"Name"=$item.Name}. SPE depends on PowerShell 3+ which is when that syntax became available. Also, I would move the function to the top of the script. Dec 15, 2017 at 14:29
  • Yes Michael, i moved the function to top of script and then only it worked. Also will take care of creating new objects using the provided syntax Dec 15, 2017 at 14:31
  • @MichaelWest Thanks guys for your comments. I am not really familiar with PowerShell. Any saggestions for improving will be appreciated. Dec 15, 2017 at 14:41
  • First, check out the #module-spe channel on the Sitecore Slack Chat. Many PowerShell users hang out there. Second, the module has a companion book doc.sitecorepowershell.com. Third, the book Professional Sitecore 8 Development has a chapter (10) I wrote which covers using the SPE module. Dec 15, 2017 at 14:43
