You can use a tool like dumpsec  http://www.systemtools.com/somarsoft/index.html to view the permissions to folders/files on your file server

Microsoft also makes accessenum and shareenum that you can use.

There is no tool that I know of that will input a user name or group then scan the entire network to know where the group/user is being used.

Thanks

AccessChk v5.01

As a part of ensuring that they've created a secure environment Windows administrators often need to know what kind of accesses specific users or groups have to resources including files, directories, Registry keys, global objects and Windows services. AccessChk quickly answers these questions with an intuitive interface and output.

Installation

AccessChk is a console program. Copy AccessChk onto your executable path. Typing "accesschk" displays its usage syntax.

Thanks for all the help. Accesschk is pretty close to what I was after (especially when combined with output to file). The only thing its missing is effective permissions and a pretty gui ;-)
