Unable to generate permission and rights report

Hello Everyone,

The problem that I'm experiencing is with an application called DumpSec. This application is supposed to generate a report on rights and permissions show directories (but not files) whose permissions differ from those of parent directory (exception dirs, no files). However, when it outputs the results, it doesn't truly print out the permissions that differ from the parent directory, instead it print out ALL permissions for ALL directories. I've contacted SystemTools about this bug and unfortunately they're unable to help me because they don't support this application. Does anyone have a recommnedation of another software that might be able to do this report?

In the Permissions Report Options, uncheck "Show Owner", leave only "Show Permissions", and try again.

Is the inheritance broken in the child folders, that is, are the checkboxes in the security settings of the child folders greyed out or white?
You can try your luck with one of these, but I've used DumpSec extensively, and it always provided the information as it should; additional entries were only generated when inheritance was broken or an group added to inherited permissions (or when the owner was listed):

Hi!

You should try Scriptlogic's Security Explorer: http://www.scriptlogic.com/products/securityexplorer/

Shareware is limited to 2 servers, 2500 users and 30 days, if I remember correctly.
