I have many entries in my group/local policies that are represented by SID's instead of account names.  I'm understanding that these mean the the accounts were deleted and can no longer be resolved.  Please tell me if I'm wrong and if it's OK to delete them.

Also, are there any tools out that can search AD for a SID and display it's accociated account (and vice versa)?

If you don't have trusts to other domains where the connection is currently not working, you're correct; you can delete those entries.
As for the SID research, have a look at this:
0519 » Everyone can find your renamed administrator.

"If you don't have trusts to other domains where the connection is currently not working, you're correct"

So trusts won't resolve?  I do have one trust to a child domain, can I use these tools to find which SID that is?
