Get open files on a remote server with powershell
I needed to send a list of open files from our file server to the helpdesk so they could contact the users that were still using the old systems. I wanted to give them something other than a screen shot so I went digging for a powershell script. I found this which uses openfile.exe but within powershell pipes the output to a nice grid view.
