Please, sorry for my bad english.

In windows 2000 / 2003 server there is some application (also 3th party app.) that can show me (administrator privileges) all folder in hard disk sorted by user permission ??


Active directory installed.
50 AD users implemented.
Allow propagation inheritable from parent "disabled".

I need to know, for entire disk storage, which folders (paths and names) have access permission for "andrea" user.
Better if i also can know if "andrea" user have permission to read / write / full control / etc ......

I hope that you can understand me ;-) ......

Thank's a lot for reply.

    You can use this tool:


    This will give you a report of permissions for any file/folder or all your files/folders. You can then import this report into excel or access and sort it.

    It's sure a solution, but not dinamically like i'm looking....

    Thank's a lot, but i need the list sort by users, i have to decide which user, i'm not looking for a simply list with all users ...

    Do you think that i can find some other utility ??
