As far as I am aware there is not interface to get all folders that are linked to a security group.

However, I have used DumpSec (http://www.systemtools.com/somarsoft/?somarsoft.com) to query a folder (and it's subfolder) and it gathers all the security details.  You can then export as a CVS and view in Excel, where you can filter the result by a user or group and see their effective permissions.

Hope this helps.

Go to the drive you want to find this out, via command prompt.
Write following command:
dir /a /q /s |find /i "Managers"

And if you want output written to the file
dir /a /q /s |find /i "Managers" > x:\path

It didn't work with "Managers" group but when I tried on a user acct, it did show.  Maybe this doesn't work on security group but just individual user acct?

I'm closing this case since there isn't any other response.  Thank you.
