  Thanks, but I was looking to script without going to each pc on campus 
(around 800).  I can get computer names, so all I need is sample that provides 
access to drives with domain admin user.
Thanks, Robert

Hello All,

  I'm looking for suggestions/directions on how to discover Outlook pst files 
on local hard drives on computers on our network.  The files all have the 
extension .pst; all computers are Windows XP;  we'd check "C" and "D" drives.

  I've tried using "NET USE X: \\computer\c$ <file:///\\computer\c$>  password 
/USER:domainadmin@xxxxxxxx", with my domain admin user, yet this fails with 
"System error 1326 has occurred.  Logon failure: unknown user name or bad 
password."   Seems this is not the way to go.

Thanks, Robert
