After establishing our Domain ( windows 2003 ) network in our company, we would like to know a way to find out for every user in what ( shared ) folders has access to. Basically, we need a tool to extract such information from our servers

Thank you for your assistance

Not sure if this is what you are looking for:

Scroll down to shareenum. These are all free tools available to admins.

At a command prompt and type "cacls /?"
You should be able to generate a report based on user and pipe it out to a csv or txt file.

check out flubbster's link.  AccessEnum and ShareEnum should do the trick.  AccessEnum will report back NTFS permissions on folders and files, while ShareEnum will show you share permissions.

Not sure if it was clear from my initial request. I would like to no security properties for shared folders ( not permissions on shared folders) . Like the following image [Security Properties for shared folder]
On the other hand let me know if you know a commercial monitoring tool that can scan a Domain Shared folders and provide such information!

Accessenum does this for you. Your picture is of ntfs permissions. Give it a try.

Actually, your title suggests you want to choose a user and see what he has rights to.  I what you are looking for is in your last post above then accessenum is the answer. and it's free.

Now, if I could get a tool for free that tells me all the shares a user has access to I would be happy.
