How to check version of Solidworks files?

I was updating my CAD database from 2016 to 2018 with task scheduler and it got through all our files in about two days. 25000 files.

Then I checked the status and about 300 files were "Failed to open in Solidworks" and some had "Referenced files are read only". I checked some of them and these were not updated to 2018.

I want to update them, but it is hard to generate a list of these files (2016 version) from our database. Is it possible to create a list of files or something so I can update them in batch? I was wondering if Windows Explorer has an option, because there is a column value "SW Last saved with" but it is too slow for me.
