How can I see what user\group has access to several folders?

I want to see what AD user and/or group has access to directories on our file server "all in one screen", without going in to each folder and looking at the security properties, as this would take a few days to do.

Is there a tool within windows that does this or a thirdparty tool?

Our file servers are running Windows 2008 R2 DC SP1

Kindly advise.
