How to search for pst files on inventory computers on k1000

05/03/2012 5532 views

Our company needs to run a search on all k1000 clients for any pst files that they might have saved on their machines.  This would include windows 7 and xp machines.

I would like the info exported into something that is usable in excel to calculate the size of the pst files.

I am open to suggestions on programs to push to the machines to get this info.  Any assistance would be apreciated as we need to gather this data by next Wednesday (5/9/12).

Thanks in advanced.

I've done this for clients in the past. From a high level you need to find where the pst files are located (hint take a look at the registry) from there take a look at the file size.   I tied all mine together with a custom inventory rule. 



This was the first hit when i went to "google"

It is usually in this location if you havent moved it:



Not familiar with kace but in SCCM we can actually have the client inventory a certain file or extension.  I do this for the account i am on by just adding the rule to monitor *.pst files which works out very well and easy to report on.
