need script to query ntfs permissions of folders at a defined directory depth

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
looking for a vbs script that would, upon execution, prompt the user for an integer, that value would determine the # of folder/directory levels to recurse, and all folders at that level (relative to the locaion of the script's location) would have their ntfs file permissions noted.

the goal is to quickly provide an output to file that records all of the permisisons for a set of folders X levels deep.    if the variable depth recusion is too complex, then a fixed dept of 1 level (ie: run it in \\server\shares\users and get the ntfs permissions for all subfolrders at: \\server\shares\users\<here>
