Need to Find out who has access to all folders on at least 3 servers

My boss has tasked me with compiling a list of who has access to basically all of the folders on the 3 major shared drives in our company.  I have seen a few tools mentioned such as:

 ShareEnum: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Security/ShareEnum.mspx and
Security Explorer: http://www.scriptlogic.com/products/security%2Dexplorer/ 

I am not sure which would be best for my purposes.  All I know is that I would like to not have to manually copy down the names of everyone who has access to everything in our company.  I am not a network admin, nor a programmer, but if needed could get the rights to run almost anything.

Both of those tools work well its preference really

I like choice 1

I played with ShareEnum briefly from my computer, and maybe I just don't know how to use it.  I am looking for something that will generate a list, folder by folder, of who has access to all folders on a server.  Can ShareEnum do that?

Sure does

Ok, I loaded ShareEnum on my computer, told it I wanted to look in the CO domain, and I can see the server, Denfs1, and one of the folders, Departments.  But I do not see any of the folders below Departments.  Do I have to run this from the Denfs1 server to see all of its folders?  Sorry if there are stupid questions.  I am a domain admin on CO, so I can see everything on that domain from my computer.  I just need to be able to see the entire file structure under \\Denfs1\Departments and get the list of who can access the folders.
