One of our employees is living so another girl is taking over for her. What i want to do is copy the exact same permissions to different files and folders Girl A (the one who is leaving) had to Girl B (the one who is staying). Is there an easy way of doing this?

Both girls have different permissions for different people. I don't want to go through a whole list of files and folders and check to see if Girl A had permission to view them. Id rather just copy them to Girl B.

Thanks!

We're running Windows Server 2003.

you can rename the account, to the new girl and all the pemissions will keep, or you can copy the old account, and all the group memeberships will still apply.
