Hi Expert,
Is there any tool or command line utility available to check specific user access right(NTF Security) for main shared folder? I understand that there is free tool like "accessenum" available from Microsoft but what I'm looking for is to check for particular user. There are so many users with different permissions to shared folder. If we would like to generate report for 1 user, how we can do it?
Please advise

    For NTFS permissions, go to the file folder, right click, select the sharing menu. On the far right of the popup, (if I remember right), there is a tab called "Effective Permissions". Or is that under the advanced tab. Anyway "effective permissions" will allow you to see what permissions set they have for that file folder.

    Isn't it called Accessenum or something like that from system Internals?

    I agree with ChiefIT, it's built into the GUI.
