    A nice feature would be to allow cut and paste from the table or output the results to a CSV file. That would make it possible to do some quick Powershell queries against AD to figure out which users are disabled (and optionally deleting the UPD file from powershel as well).

      I second the comment by Paul-Andre Panon. Need this to help find old profile disk for terminated employees.

    Hi Arjan. Nice tool, thank you for it.
    Unfortunately there is a bug in new versions as you changed the way how to retrieve [username]. Older versions displayed [domain\SamAccountName] which worked correctly for accounts from different domains.
    New versions displays user as UPN but for local domain only. Accounts from different domains are shown as [SID Resolve Error].
    So sticking with the v2.0 where account resolving works correctly and also shows info about domain what UPN format doesn’t offer (UPN suffix can differ).
    Anyway thank you for your tool, unfortunately as project is abandoned, I don’t expect any fix for it, right? :)
    Thank you

      Hi temp0,

      Since I no longer develop the project, I will not try to fix it.
      Strange though, since I changed nothing in the user-resolving in this version. I may have set the .net version slightly higher than the 2.0 version, which results in using different .net dlls for example for the Active Directory dlls.
      You could try to download the source code into Visual Studio (Community Edition is free!) and compile it for .net 4.5.

    Nice program but it only lacks 2 lines of powershell code + button:
    $ses = New-CIMSession –Computername dfs1n
    Get-SMBOpenFile -CIMSession $ses | where {$_.Path –like “*.vhdx”} | Close-SMBOpenFile -CIMSession $ses

    The Tool does not start anymore, tried it on Win 10 and Server 2016, no error , no popup. I remember using it without problems recently

    Hi Arjan. Great tool!
    I am doing an in-place upgrade of our RDS environment but it fails due to issues with user profiles/disks on migration. Anyways we run the UPDs on a network share located on the RDS broker. I am thinking to just set up a new broker but wondering if the new GUID will affect the upd disks and their mapping to the users or maybe have SID resolve error?

    • Arjan Mensch says:

      Hi Jonathan,

      The UPD filenames have nothing to do with any GUIDs. The SID part in the filename maps to that user’s Active Directory SID. You should be fine on that part.

      • Jonathan says:

        Hi Arjan, Thanks for quick response.

        Ok so guess there shouldn’t be a problem to attach the disk where we have the UPD on to a new server.

        Another thing, if AD users are deleted will it remove their UPD disk from the server or will it remain there with “SID Resolve error”? I can see a few of those.

      • Arjan Mensch says:

        Disks will NOT be deleted when you delete a user.
