Hi, I was wandering if anyone knew of any software that I could use to export network folders with the permissions with them.

You can use robocoy with /MIR switch, which will Mirror folder permissions... Here is an article that goes into more detail about files...

This is for copying files, what I need is something to export the persmissions for each folder on your network. I have to do audit and I don't want to  look at 1000's folders for the permissions for each one.

Here is an example:

Name of folder: Payroll 2013
Users or Group permissions:
     Payroll group
     Bill Smith
     Art South
     Admin Group

You can get this done very easily using Powershell. Use the following syntax below...

get-ChildItem -path "\\servername\share\directory" -recurse -Exclude *.* | get-acl | Select Path, Owner, Group, Access | out-file "c:\directoryPerms.csv"

Open in new window


I would also recommend Active  Directory Permissions Analyzer.

Solar Winds Active Directory Permissions Analyzer

Ok, so you're not trying to copy files over, you are wanting to export the actual permissions to like a CSV file?

I've never used this script, but here is an idea..

http://community.spiceworks.com/scripts/show/1070-export-folder-permissions-to-csv-file

Then, i have used a program called TreeSize, that will display the permissions for all folders as well, but it's typically all done on one line for each folder/file..

CACLS or ICACLS.
These are the command line tools for manipulating ACLs (Access Control Lists) on Windows.
Just run them without any argument to display some help message.


But are you interested in Network SHARES permissions or Folder permissions, or both?

This script may be useful too:
