How can I audit a specific users's file/folder permissions?

Is there a quick and easy way to determine what access someone has to files on the network? Over time, users have been given permissions to specific folders. I need to be able to generate some kind of report that tells me what files/folders a username can access within a certain directory. I'd like to do this without having to check the properties of every folder on the drive. Are there any tools available online that may help?

NTFS Permissions Reporter is a good free tool  http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software/NtfsReports/Info.html

dumpsec is another free tool that has been around for years that can help.

Thanks

You can check this MS-Library to see and manage users file/folders access permission : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb727008.aspx
Alternatively, you can also give a try to this software(http://www.fileserveraudit.com/) which provide the complete details in order to monitor user's file/folder access and generate the reports in different formats.
