A way to scan a NTFS tree for non-inheritable permissions

I need a way to scan a NTFS tree for non-inheritable permissions, and list them and the path out. Any ideas?

There are several tools that will create (more or less) concise lists of NTFS permissions, check this from SystemTools/Somarsoft (my favorite tool):
DumpSec (http://www.systemtools.com/somarsoft)
In the Report -> Options menu, uncheck "Show owner", and set it to "Show directories (but not files) whose permissions differ ..."
The generated report will then only contain folders whose permissions differ in any way from their parent folder.

Or these tools from Sysinternals:
AccessEnum (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897332.aspx)
AccessChk (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb664922.aspx)
ShareEnum (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897442.aspx)

Or this one from Scriptlogic:
Security Explorer (http://www.scriptlogic.com/products/securityexplorer/)

I'm not sure if you want code to do this or not but there is a software package called Emco Permissions Audit.

It's a pretty slick piece of software.

I will be taking a look at the solutions now. Maybe I am mistaking, but it looks as if Emco Permissions Audit handles SQL databases? Or can it work with scanning NTFS trees also?

It doesn't handle SQL Databases. It reads permissions for any open shares and folders on your systems.
