Script to Find Specific Folder in User Profiles

Here's a brain buster for everyone.  I know there is a way.  

Goal: Find a specific folder located in user profile appdata\romaing 

I need the results to tell me which user profile has the specific folder.  


If FolderA is found in user profiles 1, 2, and 3, then I need the script to return which user profile has that folder.

  • If you're looking to scan for that data with Inventory, I recommend a Files & Directories Scanner. The Include Pattern would look something like this:

    %SystemDrive%\Users\**\AppData\Roaming\Target Folder

    Here's the PowerShell way:

    Get-ChildItem "$env:SystemDrive\Users\*\AppData\Roaming\Target Folder"
