List of users folders and permissions

I know similar questions have been posted regularly, but I have not found an answer to some specific needs.

I have a Windows 2000 server / XP network. I need to get a list of all users, all shared folders and all permissions on the domain in the following way (table like?):

User1 > Share1 > Permissions (R,W, etc)
User1 > Share2 > Permissions
User1 > Share3 > Permissions
User2 > Share1 > Permissions
User2 > Share3 > Permisssions
User3 > Share2 > Permisssions
User3 > Share4 > Permissions

I do not like the OS utilities (xcacls and similar). I wan't a graphical interface and an active graphical view of the type: list of user > select the user/users > view the current details.

I have tried DUMPSEC: not the kind of report I need. Besides, I cannot select a user and then ask the share/permissions of that specific user.

I have tried HYENA: it approaches to the type of graphical view I need, but I have not found a way to generate a table of users/shares/permissions (by user).

Is there any utility you know of that could easily gather and show what I need? (among other things, I guess...) I do not mind if it is not freeware. I need fast and easy functionality.

Have a look at WinReporter

Free evaluation available. This will give you everything you need, it's just not cheap! However if you need a snapshot of your system shares and permissions it will give you that from the eval,

Hi Deb,

I have downloaded and tried the application you mention. Very nice software, and very easy to use.

However, unless I am missing something, it is not exactly what I am asking. I have run a complete report, and some specific reports. None of them show a table in the way USER / SHARE / PERMISSION. I get a list of domain users, share permissions by shared folder, etc., but all are based on Groups, not users.

In the domain, I assign users to group, and then use the group to assign permission to the different shared folders. The kind of information WinReport is showing is the same info that Windows can give, although with a better (simpler) approach. What I need is not the SHARE / GROUP ASSIGNED TO THE SHARE / PERMISSIONS report, but USER / SHARE ASSIGNED / PERMISSION, this user by user of the domain (not group by group).

Any ideas,
