AD Tidy - free tool for Active Directory cleanup

Use this free tool to clean up your Active Directory domain by identifying unused user and computer accounts

  • Exclude specific account names from the search results
  • Save search settings to file so that you can reload them whenever you want
  • Works with domains that you are not a member of (assuming you provide valid credentials)
  • Help buttons within the application explain what each setting is for
