Use AccessEnum

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/accessenum.aspx

AccessEnum uses standard Windows security APIs to populate its listview with read, write and deny access information.

You can export to CSV file format.

If you want a script aswell I used this powershell recently to document permissions set on each folder down tree of a file server... in that case was looking on a drive mapped to S:

There are four things to edit.  The $outfile to point to where you want CSV results.  $RootPath to where you want it to navigate down from and in this line we excluded two groups that wanted excluding.  Amend them or remove them as needed.

and !($ACL.IdentityReference -eq "DomainName\Domain Admins") -and !($ACL.IdentityReference -eq "DOMAIN\Some Shared Group"))

$OutFile = "c:\somedir\Permissions.csv" 
 $maxdepth = 5
 $RootPath = "S:\" 
 $actual_depth_param = [int]([regex]::Matches($RootPath, "\\")).count + [int]$maxdepth + 0
 $Folders = dir $RootPath -recurse | where {$_.psiscontainer -eq $true}

 foreach ($Folder in $Folders)
 { 
     if (([regex]::Matches($Folder.fullname, "\\")).count -lt $actual_depth_param)
     { 
         $ACLs = get-acl $Folder.fullname | ForEach-Object { $_.Access } 
         Foreach ($ACL in $ACLs)
         { 
             if (($ACL.IsInherited -eq $FALSE) -and !($ACL.IdentityReference -eq "DomainName\Domain Admins") -and !($ACL.IdentityReference -eq "DOMAIN\Some Shared Group"))
              {
                 $OutInfo = "`"" + $Folder.Fullname + "`",`"" +  $ACL.IdentityReference + "`",`"" + $ACL.AccessControlType + "`",`"" + $ACL.IsInherited + "`",`"" + $ACL.InheritanceFlags + "`",`"" + $ACL.PropagationFlags + "`",`"" + $ACL.FileSystemRights + "`""
