I'm just trying to figure out the best way to go about trapping errors for this script...

get-childitem in particular.  

This will tell me if somebody has been given full control vs. modify... and ripped out local administrators on our file servers when performing the specific query.

$ACLfor=read-host "Please specify the user or group to scan for"
$arrayDrives=(read-host "Please enter the drives you wish to scan for ACLs in the form of:  c:\,d:\  ").Split(",")
@(forEach ($arrayElement in $arrayDrives)
get-childitem  -path $arrayElement -recurse |
where{$_.PSIsContainer} |
get-acl |
?{($_.Access | 
%{$_.IdentityReference}) -contains "$ACLfor"} | Select Path,AccessToString
}) | Export-csv ACL.csv -noTypeInformation -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
