Find all folders a group has access to (NTFS permissions)

I'm trying to find a good tool to report what specific groups have access too. For example, group X has access to many folders, but without documentation it is tricky to find what needs to be migrated. I need a tool that can simply analyse all folder, and display back just the group that I select, so I understand where the group has permissions.

I tried accesschk but it is a bit tricky to use.

Has anyone else got some suggestion for alternatives?

I tested it earlier today but I found the result a bit flaky, it missed some folder and several it was simply displaying "???" so I didn't give it much credit, not sure how reliable it is

Are you talking about shares, there are several examples of scripts vbscript that deals with share migration.
Are you looking at share or security permissions(outflow from the prior)?

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

AlexAuthor Commented:
Yes, but not entirely. Some network shares have lots of granular NTFS permissions down the tree. We are migrating all the data to a new domain, so network shares will be all recreated, but some of these NTFS permissions are not documented properly and we are finding hard to for example, find all the folders a specific group has access to. We are simply sharing it with everyone and controlling all permissions with NTFS. What VBscript do you have in mind?

Any iteration script vb/powershell or as the example using permission settings.  Exporting path/filename and permissions into a CSV/or a DB.
If needed, doing a mapping from old to new...

I think you still need to have the share permissions in

Transition to a new domain without trust establishment?

Got is sort of done with the tool, but the tool is not ideal
