Hi - I would like to know if there is anyway that I can recover a username from a deleted user account in Windows as I have the SID.  We are on a Windows 2008 domain and have a SID appearing on some of our folders which I would like to try and resolve the name of the original owner.  I have tried psgetsid but no joy.  

Many Thanks for your assistance
