I need to print out the shares that are on a network drive so that when I replace the server, which is a windows 2008 server, connected to a san. I can then setup the shares again once the new server is backup.
Is there any freeware utility out there to do this or can I do it from windows?

Maybe just as well, go to Computer Management,
in the Shares folder, click Shares, then take s screenshot.

If you mean all shares and all perms, here is a script on that:

What is the option to use with net use to display all the share, including the shares in the sub folders?

I'm not sure what you mean? A share is just a share.  Are you meaning, list a share and then list all subfolders of that share?  

You can also do this from powershell

gwmi -class Win32_Share

OK. I think if you are on the local server you'd do the following:
net share

That will list shares and file paths.
Output that to a text file and make a quick and dirty batch file.
Example:

ImageStore   E:\ImageStore                  
Accounting    E:\Accounting

Make that be:
dir /s E:\ImageStore >list.txt
dir /s E:\Accounting >>list.txt

etc.

This will build a list.txt file that will have all of the subdirectories of those shares.

no points:  net use will only show shares that are being used by a client
net share from a server will list out all of the shares.  Oops was mentioned above
