Export all server folder permissions on Windows SBS 2008 (Windows 2008R2)

Posted on 2014-03-28
Last Modified: 2014-03-28

I'll be replacing a customer's Windows 2008 server with a new Windows 2012 server (separate domain, etc).

The folder structure is quite deep and contains about 100 folders.  I would like to find a way of exporting the list of folders, and the permissions to the folder.  

Is there any available utility to do this?  Other recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

I use DumpSec (formerly DumpAcl). Its a free utility from SystemTools (the makers of Hyena).

You can also use PowerShell.

Get-ChildItem "C:\Folder" -Recurse | Get-Acl -Exclude *.* | export-csv c:\File\YourFolder\Output.csv
