Have a Windows 2003 std server with a large file structure.  Some permissions on random folders have been changed.  We are looking to generate a report or some sort of viewable information that contains all of the existing permissions of an entire folder structure with all underlining files and folders in a partition.

Use Xcacls.exe to view permissions
You can also use Xcacls.exe to view permissions for a file or folder. For example, type xcacls C:\winnt at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. The following is a typical result: c:\WINNT BUILTIN\Users:R
           BUILTIN\Users:(OI)(CI)(IO)(special access:)
                                     GENERIC_READ
                                     GENERIC_EXECUTE

           BUILTIN\Power Users:C
           BUILTIN\Power Users:(OI)(CI)(IO)C
           BUILTIN\Administrators:F
           BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
           NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:F
           NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
           BUILTIN\Administrators:F
           CREATOR OWNER:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
