I am assisting with a project and we thought we could use the k1000 Inventory and a Custom Inventory Rule to find PST files saved on local workstations so we can assist users and help them import to the online archive.  I used the following syntax -

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c powershell Get-ChildItem c:\ -Recurse | where {$_.extension -eq ".PST"})

The issue is I am finding it returned nearly every workstation, for some reason it is also picking up files like pstorsvc.dll

Is there a better way to search these files out?

  • I also need to log them so we know which have the existence of these files.

You don't need to go for any paid tool or manual techniques when I have a free tool to do the same work in a matter of seconds.
yes it is a free tool and you don't have to pay anything for the same. Its not a demo version ...its a free full version tool.
I have used it and it worked well.
Who will not want a free tool whcih simplifies your work and make it more easy.
It is a tool from SysInfoTools.

Just check it out.
