seeing what files a user has permissions to on an SBS 2011 standard server

on SBS 2011: I know there's the group policy modeling that lets you see how group policy will affect a specific user.

Is there a similar app or how would you see what folders / shares a certain user can access?

we gave a user permission to a single folder on the server.  I forgot what that share is called.  so did the boss.  they want to put a file in that share / folder so that user can access it.

I wound up logging in on the user's machine as the user and saw the share name he could get to.  but is there an easier / other way?

    We have to make a difference between local access and network access when enumerating. So it would depend on your share's ACL as well if it is set non-standard (standard being either everyone:read or everyone:change).
