As I am system administrator I have created more than 50 users and appropriately I have given various access permission to some folders for every users. Now the problem is I want to format my server and reinstall Window Server 2003 OS. But after formatting all my permission would be destroyed and it would be very difficult to remember that which user had which permissions. Is there any facility so I can  take backup and restore folder and file permissions so that after formatting  I would be able to restore those folder and will apply previous permissions and access controls.
Please help me out for this issue
