File Server Shares


Is there anything out there that can tell me what users are granted access to shares. We ahve have a couple of file server with loads of shares on them and say within the root share ie Public we have lots of folders in there like say accounts, dispatch, retail etc is there anything i can run that will tell me what im allowed to access for example?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is one of the features that really appealed to us in server 2008. Having a single MMC with all the shares in one
spot and being able to set them there. Under 2003 we had shares all ovelr the place and had similar problems
