Folder permission

I am looking for a way to find out how a user account has specific rights on a folder or file.  I know that I can go into the advanced security settings to effective permissions to see what rights a user has.  

What I am looking for is something that can tell me, what group membership got that user those rights.  As always cost is a concern.  

Thanks for you help

ThorinO: -I am looking for something that I could run against one folder or file at a time and also give a user account and see what group membership was giving the user what access.  In the case that sparked this, the domain user account was in the local user account of a server.  That local users account had read write access by default.  I needed to block inheritance from the folder and remove local users.  I know that we have a ton of bad security like this in our domain since this is the "default windows security"

marahman3001- this looks to only show the shares.  I am looking for a deeper dive into how a user gets his rights.

isiek - I will try this out and see.  I have wanted to get this because there is a ton that this software can do but it is not cheep.  I will let you know

It sounds like you are looking for NTFS permissions. If you want to see security rights on a specific file or folder you can right click it and go to properties then select the security tab. Here you will see local and domain users and what rights they have. You can dig deeper by clicking on the advanced button.

Still had to do a little more digging.  I was not able/willing to pay for script logics, but I am pretty sure that this does what I am looking for at a price
