Posted on 2005-04-19

I'm a Win2000 newbie.
Win2000 Server and Win200 Clients within a domain.

Is it possible to generate a list of all directories, where "EVEVERYBODY" has rights to read and/or write?
Or is there a tool for this.
I want to remove EVERYBODY from all those directories.

    Read the following article:

    It covers the default ACLs in win2k.  The file to look at is either %windir%\inf\defltwk.inf or%windir%\inf\defltsv.inf depending on whether its a server or workstations, there's another file %windir%\inf\defltdc.inf (surprisingly!!) for DCs.

    The referenced article should answer all your questions (its huge!!).

    2 tools from sysinternals will do this. These are great freeware tools.

    Accessenum and shareenum.

    AE will scan the local drives, and report permissions for all files and folders (you can narrow down the scope if you want)

    SE will scan shared folders and report permissions based on share
