The Grim Admin is happy to announce a free tool, called File Searcher by Owner, for Microsoft Windows systems that allows you to search for files and folders based on the owner of the object. Since this feature has not been built into any version of Microsoft Windows, prior to this tool you would have to run some crazy command-line hacks like
dir /q /s | find /i "domain\username" or try to create your own custom batch file, a rather tedious task.
File Searcher by Owner is a simple to use utility that allows you to search for local or network shared files and folders by a local or domain user or group. Features include:
- Support for UNC paths
- Export to comma-separated (CSV) file
- Preserves right-click context menu for files & folders
- Portable and lightweight
