How do I audit file and folder permissions on the entire network?

Hello,

I need to do an audit of security permissions for every file and folder on our network. I need to find out what groups and individuals have permission to what and what level of access. Is there a tool/utility out there that I can run and collect all this info and then have all this data exported to a spreadsheet of word document?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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)
