Script to backup file permissions on all drives

I am going to be doing lots of work on our file servers over the weekend and it would be good to have backups of all the file permission on all servers.

Can anyone help me with a script that will

Create c:\temp (if it doesn't already exist)
Identify all the drive letters that are in use on the server
Use SubInAcl to backup the file permissions to C:\temp\%computername%_Driveletter_Date.txt

I can then add this as a computer startup script as all the servers will be rebooted before work starts!

Thanks

Aidan

Here you go.

All you have left, is to do your SubInAcl command line.


@ECHO OFF

SETLOCAL enabledelayedexpansion

SET TempFolder=c:\Temp

IF NOT EXIST "%TempFolder%" MD "%TempFolder%"

FOR /F %%A IN ('WMIC logicaldisk where drivetype^=3 get caption ^| FINDSTR :') DO (
	SET DriveLetter=%%A
	SET DriveLetter=!DriveLetter::=!
	ECHO SubInAcl command line >"%TempFolder%\%computername%_!DriveLetter!_%Date%".txt
)
