Should the user list be formatted in a particular way?
When i try with just username in a text file it thinks each character is a username.
e.g. Checking user 'u' status in AD......User 'u' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 's' status in AD......User 's' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 'e' status in AD......User 'e' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 'r' status in AD......User 'r' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user '9' status in AD......User '9' doesn't exist in AD

Hello Kunaludapi,

First I want to thank you for putting this tool up for everyone to download, it's super amazing.
But I think I found a bug: When I load a text file with just one Username in it, it's splitting every letter apart and I don't know why.
Here is the Log of this Part:
Selected file name 'C:\Users\kevt\Desktop\kevt.txt'
==============================
Checking user '' status in AD
Check your access on user ''
Checking user '' status in AD
Check your access on user ''
Checking user 'a' status in AD
User 'a' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 'd' status in AD
User 'd' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 'm' status in AD
User 'm' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 'k' status in AD
User 'k' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 'e' status in AD
User 'e' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 'v' status in AD
User 'v' doesn't exist in AD
Checking user 't' status in AD
User 't' doesn't exist in AD

Do you have to format the drive if it is already formatted? I have 3 drives that I want to setup to share between 2 or more VMs that have data on them already. If I have to format them then I will have to get new drives and use USB passthrough to transfer the data onto the new drives via external enclosures.
