Posted on 2008-10-29

Hi everyone,

Is there a utility I could use to enumerate what NTFS permissions an individual user has?  

Note:  I need to check the NTFS permissions for a user on several volumes of folders and subfolders.

Thank you.

The xcacls is close, but I was hoping I could input a username, point it at a volume, and the output would be all folders, subfolders, and files a user has permissions to.

A little more background on what I'm facing:  Users were allowed to assign permissions to various folders.  I've been finding users were giving other users permissions were there should have been restricted access.  

Thanks again.

Hi!

You should use 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.

Or the following free tools:
DumpSec (http://www.somarsoft.com/):
AccessChk (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Security/AccessChk.mspx)
AccessEnum (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Security/AccessEnum.mspx)
ShareEnum (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Security/ShareEnum.mspx)
