Determine who owns the recycle bin on W2K3

On our development W2K3 box we sometimes run out of space.  I use SpaceMonger to map out where the space is being used and have sometimes found large hunks of junk in a users recycle bin.  Now it’s just a matter of finding out who.  SpaceMonger will show a path like:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-21-1384440006-404362789-3620623192-2690

But to determine the user, you must go to the registry (HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList) and look for that SID in the ProfileImagePath.
