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:

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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

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
