A couple years ago I found a Windows utility that was able to search for a filename or filename extension on multiple servers (as long as the user doing the search was an administrator or domain administrator).

This utility would then list the exact path \\server\drive letter\folder path to the file.

I am now looking for utilities that are able to do this.

What utilities are able to do this?
