    Usually by going to properties and then security on the folder/file in question. You should see the creator listed there

    Hope that helps

    Where are you looking?

    Under the Security tab should show permissions to it. One being admins/domain etc, and one being owner?

    Click the Advanced button on the Security tab and then go to the Owner tab.
