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.

You can try AccessEnum from SysInternals.

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
