I have tried that thanks, actually it would be Icacls i believe but i think you can only check permissions on a folder with that

I would like to specify a domain user and have the ntfs permissions list out for that user

Sorry, I meant Xcacls from the resource kit.  You can use the /T to recursively go through sub folders.  The output is not user friendly though.  

I've used dumpsec from
http://www.systemtools.com/somarsoft/   
on win 2003.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Hi,

You can do this via powershell quite easily

First run this command to check if you can run ps code

Get-ExecutionPolicy
RemoteSigned

if it's something else then run the following command

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

If just want to check on Single file or Folder use the following command
Get-Acl -Path C:\windows | FL Path, AccessToString


For Bulk use this
Now run the following command to get folder path

get-childitem P:\folderName -recurse | foreach {$_.directoryName} | Get-Unique

You can either copy from the console or redirect it to a csv file

get-childitem P:\folderName -recurse | foreach {$_.directoryName} | Get-Unique | Out-File -FilePath P:\Temp\inheritance.txt

Open the File, Add FolderName (can be anything) as header, rename the extension to .csv

Now

import-csv -path P:\temp\inheritance.csv | %{Get-Acl $_.FolderName} | FT Path, AccessToString -Wrap

Nice. thanks for the power shell info. I see you have how to display permissions on a folder, how would i view all permissions on a folder and subfolders for a specific domain user?

That's a bit tricky to get. But sure in PS you can achieve it. It would require me sometime before i can write up that code.
