    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 ( 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?
