List only specific user files

Specs: Windows XP
In windows under file attributes there is an ownership or owner that lists the last user that modified a file. Is there a script or simple way to list files in a dir. with that owner name?

dir /q=username /s

I think that the Owner property only applies to directories tho.

Hey man thanks.. Here is what I am trying to do. I would like to monitor a directory (lets say i: drive) and see what files/dir change in the last 24 hours. I am using the following command:

dir I: /S /q /s /T:A | find /i "group\user" > info.txt

However in the txt file it lists <DIR>... There is no directory listing like:

I think you are going to have to program a parser to separate out the data you need in the output file. This way you have access to advanced text command like left$ or wherein. I usually give projects like this to my programmer and he writes me a VBS. I will give this to him and see if he will but if he is busy maybe not. He enjoys the challenges or you might want to look into baselineing tools. These tools will image the computer and send alerts when any of the files have changed. The best one is Tripwire but it costs money.
