I have a folder out on our netowrk share that  am trying to find, We just setup quotas and we have a folder on the D drive of our file sever and it displays a SID instead of the user, we suspect the user no longer works for us and was removed from AD, how can I find this folder quickly?   We have over 4,000 folders on the drive and I would like to not have to look at the security for each one

    I am going to try it, it would be nice if that tool displayed the owner as well

    You could do this, to a text file, and then search it by the SID.
