It seems no matter how much you try you cannot ever get those damned orphaned homedirs cleaned up. Well, this helps. Our org always has additional groups in the homedir (no, we don’t just let the users have whatever they want in there, so we have to monitor). This causes a little confusion amongst most orphaned file checkers (as there is still a group in there that resolves). Read on for the code and an example.

What this script does is it scans a directory’s subdirectories (as with many homedirs, the subdirectories are usually the AD account name). It then tries to match the subdirectory to an AD account name. If this proves that one doesn’t exist, it prompts and spits out the ACL info and a prompt to move the files. If you say yes, it moves them to the directory you specified in arg1.

'Example: cscript orphaned-files.vbs "T:" "T:~archive"  where T: is a mapped drive
strDomain = "dc=yourdomain,dc=com"
strFromDir = wscript.arguments(0)
strToDir = wscript.arguments(1)
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
ShowSubfolders FSO.GetFolder(strFromDir)
Sub ShowSubFolders(Folder)
    For Each Subfolder in Folder.SubFolders
        'Wscript.Echo Subfolder.Path
  sUserName = replace(Subfolder.Path, strFromDir,"")
End Sub
Sub UserExist(sUserName)
 dtStart = TimeValue(Now())
 Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
 objConnection.Open "Provider=ADsDSOObject;"
 Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
 objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
 objCommand.CommandText = _
  "<LDAP://" & strDomain & ">;(&(objectCategory=User)" & _
    "(samAccountName=" & sUserName & "));samAccountName;subtree"
 Set objRecordSet = objCommand.Execute
 If objRecordset.RecordCount = 0 Then
  WScript.Echo "*******************sAMAccountName: " & sUserName & " does not exist."
 End If
End Sub
Sub DisplayACLS(sUserName)
 Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
 Set objWshScriptExec = objShell.Exec("ICACLS " & strFromDir & sUserName & "")
 Set objStdOut = objWshScriptExec.StdOut
 strLine = objStdOut.ReadAll
 Wscript.Echo strLine
 intAnswer = _
    Msgbox("Do you want to move these files?", _
        vbYesNo, "Move Files")
 If intAnswer = vbYes Then
  wscript.echo "Skipping Files"
  wscript.echo "*******************"
 End If
End Sub
Sub MoveFiles(sUserName)
 wscript.echo "Moving Files"
