How to scan NTFS permissions of an entire directory

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
I have a folder on my companies file server. The folder has 46,878 files & 6,526 folders. I need to run a report that will list out the NTFS permisions for every object (files and folders) located under this parent folder.

I was told about a microsoft tool 'xcacls.vbs' that will run a report for me, but I can only seem to get it to work on one folder at a time. I am unable to get it the tool to traverse the directory and pull results from all of the subdirectories and files.

Does anyone know how to use this tool to pull a report that I need or perhaps another tool that can get the job done?

Thanks!!!
