  • You have an invalid string.

    To create a timespan you must create a valid string format.

    Here are the instructions: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.timespan?view=netframework-4.8

    If you do not provide valid strings you will get that error.

  • You need to verify that you are getting/creating a valid string.  If you don't understand then you will need to take the time to learn PowerShell before continuing.
