CSVDE will export a spreadsheet with more info than you'd like to know about your AD:

This is a multiple problem. Users can be in groups, that in turn have access to NTFS folder, and other AD objects. So, it is hard to see EVERYTHING they have access to.
You would have to have a dump of folder permissions, and compare.. if you want to know what files they have access to.
From the AD side, is possible to dump access list info. I can't recall exact methods I've used.

Check out this tool (DumpSec):

Yes, DumpACL/DumpSec should give you registry level and file level Access Lists.
