    Do you know if mappings are done via GPO? I'd check there first.
    GPOMC-> Default Domain Policy->User Configuration->Preferences->Windows Settings->Drive Maps

    Accepted Solution

    Permissions in folders are not stored in active directory, so you can't query AD for that information. You have to query a specific folder, volume, server with scripts or application and then you have a report of users permission.

    AccesEnum (from Sysinternals)/Hyena/Dumpsec  is an application to make that kind of reports.

    Neeraj's post is correct, AccessEnum is a more effective way to report on what you are describing:

    You could try and perform the following command
    showacls /s /u:Domain\user > c:\user_file.txt

    but ultimately it'd give a text file of a single user.
