File and Folder permissions ...who has access to what?

I have a few file servers with thousand of folders and files. I need to know who has access to what files and folders without drilling down to each individual file and folder.

I'm now tasked with certifiying annually who has access to what files and folders and getting their supervisor to sign off on or ok their access....do they still need access to such and such. (This is a new process for the org, it hasn't been done in the past)

What free or low priced product is out there that I can install and checked access permissions on my Windows 2003 and 2008 file servers?

Here's a quick script to write permissions to a text file.  This could easily be modified to create a icacls AclFile for use later as a differential check, etc.

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for /f "skip=1" %%d in ('wmic logicaldisk get caption^,providername^,drivetype^,volumename') do (
	set drive=%%d
	if not [!drive!]==[] if exist !drive!\ (
		set /p p=Processing DACLs on !drive!\<nul
		(icacls !drive!\* /t /c /q)>>perms_!drive!.txt 2>nul
		if exist perms_!drive!.txt (echo ...wrote !perms_!drive!.txt) else (echo.)
	)
)

You could look into Tripwire Enterprise.  Tripwire detects changes to 29 object properties (file/directory) and 21 registry key/values on Windows.

Specifically NTFS DACL, SACL, etc.
