SYNOPSIS
    A PSDrive for file activity limited to the scope of a singe Describe or
    Context block.
 
DESCRIPTION
    A test may need to work with file operations and validate certain tyes of
    file activities. It is usually desirable not to perform file activity tests
    that will produce side effects outside of an individual test. Pester
    creates a PSDrive inside the user's temporary drive that is accesible via a
    names PSDrive TestDrive:. Pester will remove this drive after the test
    completes. You may use this drive to isolate the file operations of your
    test to a temporary store.
 
EXAMPLE
    function Add-Footer($path, $footer) {
        Add-Content $path -Value $footer
    }
 
    Describe "Add-Footer" {
        $testPath="TestDrive:\test.txt"
        Set-Content $testPath -value "my test text."
        Add-Footer $testPath "-Footer"
        $result = Get-Content $testPath
 
        It "adds a footer" {
            (-join $result).Should.Be("my test text.-Footer")
        }
    }
     
    When this test completes, the contents of the TestDrive PSDrive will
    be removed.
