Network Folder permissions

Hi guys n gals!
I have inherited a nasty network where there is a huge network share with hundreds of folders and no group security setup.  All of the folders have permissions allocated on a user by user basis!!! Scary!!!

Anyways... I want to resolve this and setup group based security, but first I need to know who has what permissions and where.  So do any of you know of a tool (Preferably a freebie) that can achieve this?  It would be a nicety also to know which groups all users are in too, but that's a separate issue I guess.

Many thanks peeps!

I had to provide a report on this a while back, and used EMCO Permission Audit.

EMCO Permissions Audit can help to find security holes by reporting on specific access rights a user has within a Domain to folders mapped via a share. EMCO Permissions Audit is a very useful network utility for those who want to test their network

You can download it from http://www.emco.is/products/permissions-audit-xml/download.php
