We have terabytes worth of data that we need to clean up, and to do that we have to query files last accessed dates.

THe problem though is alot of these user files access permissions were set to specific user's only (no admin access or whatsover). What is the best way to capture this by bypassing the access issues and way to be able to go through terabytes of data.

Hi
You can try:
get-childitem –recurse | where-object {$_.lastwritetime -lt “1/13/2008”}| select-object name,LastWriteTime, length | out-file c:\rapport.txt

but the permission is not a good thing. Anyway for deleting the files you need to have access rights. So first do permission cleanup, use groups, not users and be sure that domain admins are full access on all data.
You can explain go your users that whitwout prepoer permission you can't have backup, and you can not manage this file server.
