What software is available to:
1)  Identify all files/directories owned by a
    specified user.
or
2)  Extend the Windows Explorer Find... widget to
    add file owner as a search restriction.

2) is actually a special case of 1).  It would also
be nice to add the file owner as a new column in Windows
Explorer display, but that by itself doesn't allow the
files to be enumerated.

Hello.

There is a product called FINAL for Windows NT Server that can accomplish this for you.  Specifically, it's a administrative tool for NT in the form of a scripting language.  It can do searches for file/directoriy owners, or just search for files to which a given user has access.  It also has an search and replace feature, which is quite powerfull.  It's produced by FastLane Technologies, whom you can find at http://www.fastlanetech.com/

To elaborate on the comment by guyhorn, DumpAcl is a tool produced by SomarSoft which is now available for free from SystemTools.

The tool can list security attributes (including owner).

I would like to add that dumpacl is a rather "dumb" tool, in the sense that you can't really search through the results, or perform a certain action based on a search result.  You might be able to get somewhat fancy with Perl and Grep and stuff, but it would definately lack the intelligence to perform any slightly more advanced logic based on the results.
