Need a script to set user pst files ownership to themselves %username% (drk owns drk.pst). I need to change the ownership for 5000 users so doing this one by one is killing me. No luck so far with anything to grant a user ownership of his/her own pst. Tried: Set-Owner -Path V:\thnguyen.pst -ACCOUNT 'ADMI\thnguyen for example but powershell didn't recognize "Set-Owner".
