Hi,

I wonder if this is possible with Powershell script, I need to get the owner of files which I have the list in .CSV file as the absolute folder path so that I can get the result in secondary column which list the owner of the files.

The first column of the CSV:
F:\Directory1\file1.zip
H:\Directory3\file4.docx
.
.
.
F:\Directory99\file234324.bat

The second column is none, but I'd like it to be:
Logonname1
Logonname2
.
.
.
Logonname99

Thanks.

Code is a little different depending on whether the file you already have is a CSV (and what (if any) headers are present) or just a text file with the file names.  I'm going to assume a simple text file without any commas for the input.
(Get-Content .\files.csv) | ForEach { New-Object PsObject -property @{ name = $_; owner = (Get-Acl $_).owner}} | Export-Csv files.csv -notype

Open in new window

This will write back to the original file, but you could change the file being written to with Export-CSV if you want to write to a different file and leave the original alone.
