How to find file shares or directories associated with a security group in Windows

I need to determine all shared folders (or just directories) associated with a given Active Directory security group.  Is there an easy way to do this (the hard way only got me so far!)  TIA

Hi
as i understand you want to list all shared folder in a system wear a specific security group is added ?

it can be done using cacls windows command and a filter ;)

Example

================================================================
C:\>cacls *|find /i "BUILTIN\Administrators"

C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT BUILTIN\Administrators:F
                BUILTIN\Administrators:F
C:\BOOT.BAK BUILTIN\Administrators:F
C:\boot.ini BUILTIN\Administrators:F
C:\CA_LIC BUILTIN\Administrators:F
          BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
C:\cmdcons BUILTIN\Administrators:F
           BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
C:\cmldr BUILTIN\Administrators:F
C:\CONFIG.SYS BUILTIN\Administrators:F
              BUILTIN\Administrators:F
C:\Downloads BUILTIN\Administrators:F
             BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
            BUILTIN\Administrators:F
            BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
C:\Em BUILTIN\Administrators:F
      BUILTIN\Administrators:(OI)(CI)(IO)F
C:\ExtraOutlook.exe BUILTIN\Administrators:F
C:\>
================================================================
it will list all folders in c: drive wear  BUILTIN\Administrators have some rights , you just need to change  BUILTIN\Administrators to your domain group and it will show you the permissions information
