First you will need to make sure that turn on the file inventory, not File collection (we don't want to copy all those files into ConfigMgr). Be sure to exclude the Windows directory at the least. Once a SW inventory has run you will be able to pull this informaiton. Depending on the state of your machines it might take a while before all have run the check. Be aware that this could decrease the performance of the system if this is the first run of the search. Now that we have all the information in ConfigMgr we need. This query should be created on the Query Node because it will not create a collection. Created by Matthew Hudson --------------------------------
