Hi folks, I'm looking for a tool that will give me a nice, easy to read report that compares the share permissions with the NTFS permissions on all the folders on our file server.  I've played around with DumpSec a little bit and it's not bad but has some issues reporting on anything below the root folders.

Any suggestions?

Try one of these.
FREE PERMISIONS ANALYZER

Check out GFI languard. It has a handy report that shows all shares and what groups have what access.

Those are interesting options but it doesn't appear that FREE PERMISSIONS ANALYZER lets you run reports and GFI Languard will need to be installed on the server itself.  I'd rather not throw trial management software on our fileserver if it's not necessary.  Dumpsec can be run from any computer with access to the file server--it just doesn't have quite the features I'd hope for when it comes to customizing reports.

Ended up using ACLReporter and was very pleased with the results.

The suggested options did not offer anything that fit our needs.  We ended up going with something different that was not suggested--ACLReporter.  Great reporting tools.
