Handling Orphaned Database Files with dbatools

Rod Edwards rounds up the orphans:

This may be an edge case issue, it may not. Or some may not know this is a potentially a thing. For any of the above questions, i’m not sure of the answer. I do know however, that it doesn’t involve morally suspicious fairy tales of any kind, flutes, or pastry products for that matter.

I also know that it’s something that could potentially be robbing disk space across SQL Estates so i’ll talk about it anyway and supply a simple way to fix this in one sweep using the magnificent DBATools.

Rod’s claim is no pastry products, but my counter-argument is that the command probably runs better if someone brings donuts in.
