Locate user permissions

We have a couple incidents here where I need to find all the permissions assigned to a particular user or group on a server.  I've used programs like AccessEnum and excals to find all permissions on folders, but what I need it to be able to find just those related to a particular one.

For example. User X is leaving the company and user Y is being promoted to the position.  We can't simple rename the account because the new user has existing permissions they can't lose.  So I need to find all folders on a couple of servers that the old user had permission to.

We have the same case with a couple of groups that I'm wanting to consolidate into one group, but I need to combine their permissions.

Is there some utility that will let me specify a user and get the permissions?

Think you could use xcacls or subinacl to display security and change it (with subinacl through a file).

try:
xcacls <drive>:\*.* /t /c

it will display _all_ security for all files/folders and subfolders, then use some filter tool to find the user(s) you want changed.

subinacl is a resource kit tool, which is quite powerful, check its helpfile...

I found the tool I was looking for.  I used DumpSec http://www.somarsoft.com/ and it gives me a report on both shares and NTFS about permissions in a GUI.
