Folder Permissions


I'm looking to get a list of permissions on one of our department folders (on a Windows 2003 Server) and all it's subfolders. This is required on a monthly bases so ideally if i could dump in into excel.
I've been looking at using Xcacls.exe and am able to get permissions on individual folders, what command would be used to view permissions on the parent folder and all its subfolders? Is Xcacls the best tool to use for this? Thanks

You can use a number of utilities including AccessEnum http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/bb897332
and DumpSec http://www.systemtools.com/free.htm
XACLS is good and useful.

You could also try DumpSec which is available from here: http://www.systemtools.com/somarsoft/index.html
