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.

We now have a tool that lets you find what company owns a registered media access control address (MAC address). This could be useful in identifying the manufactuer of a networked device based on its organizationally unique identifier (OUI).
We hope you find the MAC Address Lookup Tool useful!
