Group Distro+Security

I'm trying to save myself a headache by posting how to find out what security access a distribution group may have. I know you're suppose to seperate your email groups from your security groups, but some ameatures apply both and don't use the best practice for naming conventions.

So my questions is, in order to find out who I will be affecting by removing users from the distro or deleting the distro, what will I have to do?  This group can be applied on any OU or application like sharepoint for sharepoint access and file servers exc.

I was thinking I may have to use an LDAP query or is there a built in method for doing something like this?

There is no query that will give you the access a group has. For example if you assign a security group NTFS or ahre permissions, this is not stored in AD. One way you could try to get this information is with a product like security explorer.
Another way is to just switch the security group to a distrubtion group and see what access the users loose. You can just switch the group back to a security group to give the access back.
