Hi,

I have tried to export the windows server event logs by using the Save All events option but when i open the CSV file seems that the Usernames are displayed as SID's.

Is there a way to make the Usernames appear in the exported file.

Thanks
GFC

The SID is exported instead of the username in order to protect your users identifies should the files be used for troubleshooting by external parties.

You can use "PsGetSid"  to convert SID to names and vice versa.
