Hi
We have a server which has very deep file structures and overtime specific permissions have been applied at file and sub-folder level. It's a bit of a mess. I'm looking for advice on a good piece of software (free or paid-for) which will go through my hard drive and report back with what permissions apply at each level so we can figure out how to simplify the permissions and discover any vulnerabilities.



Thanks

if you prefer using script, here is another approach:

Read a Folder DACL

please be aware that you need to add another script to traverse the whole directory tree.

hope it helps,
