Script to check and inventory the shares that have checkbox unchecked "Include inheritable permission from this object’s parent”

I am looking for a script to check and inventory the shares  that have checkbox unchecked "Include inheritable permission from this object’s parent” and export the results to csv.

It turns out that we have issues with those folders that don't have that checkbox checked and need have that checkbox checked and propagate permissions from parent.

Please help.

This should get the info you want:

$results = @()
$items = Get-ChildItem c:\test -Recurse

foreach ($item in $items) {
    $acl = Get-Acl $item.FullName
    $results += New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{
        IsInherited = $acl.Access[0].IsInherited
        Path = $item.FullName

$results | Export-Csv Inherited.csv -NoTypeInformation;Invoke-Item Inherited.csv

Open in new window

Just be sure to replace the path in bold with the actual top level directory you're iterating through.

Great! IT works. IS it possible though it would also verify hidden shares.....I tested the script and it ignores hidden shares....Otherwise it is awesome!!
