I keep on having permission issues on a particular share and I wanted to know what utilities or options there are as far as documenting and viewing folder permissions on a share/s?  I wanted to do this within both a windows 2003/2008 environment.  It would be great if there is some type of an image I can view the permissions.

Lastly, what's the best approach as far as rebuilding the permissions from the ground up?

Also sharenum from MS may also be of help for you.

As far as options for rebuilding permissions thats largely based on your needs. That being said I prefer to use cacls or xcacls to add or edit permissions.

There are always 2 sets of access controls that you need to be aware of..
ntfs file permissions on the actual drive and then the share permissions.  The most restrictive permission always wins and deny takes precedence over allow
