Hey guys,
I am using showaccs.exe from the win2K support tools and I think I understand what the output file's last field is when i run it with the /f option.
But since there is no documentation that I have found on it, can someone give me a link or explanation of what the possibilities of the output file's last column is ?

Appreciate any help you can provide.

Thanks

By "last field" are you referring to things like (+F[f][d])?  If so, then you might take a look at the output from Xcacls and compare it to the output from Showaccs.

any one else willing to explain what those values mean ? I assume the [f] [d] has something to do with the 2 checkboxes in the security options. any one got a lead on that?

The f and d simply show to which objects the permissions apply, [F]iles or [D]irectories. The letters in front indicate the permissions (for example "+F") or denials (for example "-d"); if capitalized, it's a directory, small letters indicate a file.
I haven't looked at it too much in detail, but showaccs seems to make a pretty quick withdrawal when it comes to special permissions; it doesn't resolve them, instead it just saves them as "special".
