I have a script that pulls all the file permissions etc once i specify the path to start in, however it recurse's it to every single file, which on a file server leads to many many records being created, is there a way to recurse only at the folder level ?

here's part of the code

$ErrorActionPreference = "Continue" 
$strComputer = $env:ComputerName 
$colDrives = Get-PSDrive -PSProvider Filesystem 
ForEach ($DriveLetter in $colDrives) { 
    $StartPath = "E:\Share" 
    Get-ChildItem -LiteralPath $StartPath -Recurse | 
    ForEach { 
      $FullPath = Get-Item -LiteralPath (Get-Item -LiteralPath $_.PSPath) 
      (Get-Item -LiteralPath $FullPath).GetAccessControl() | 
      Select * -Expand Access | 
      Select @{N='ServerName';E={$strComputer}}, 
             @{N='FullPath';E={$FullPath}}, 
             @{N='Type';E={If($FullPath.PSIsContainer -eq $True) {'D'} Else {'F'}}}, 
             @{N='Owner';E={$_.Owner}}, 
             @{N='Trustee';E={$_.IdentityReference}}, 
             @{N='Inherited';E={$_.IsInherited}}, 
             @{N='InheritanceFlags';E={$_.InheritanceFlags}}, 
             @{N='AceFlag';E={$_.PropagationFlags}}, 
             @{N='AceType';E={$_.AccessControlType}}, 
             @{N='AccessMasks';E={$_.FileSystemRights}} }

In your first ForEach-Object loop, add this parameter to your Get-ChildItem cmdlet:

ForEach ($DriveLetter in $colDrives) { 
    $StartPath = "E:\Share" 
    Get-ChildItem -LiteralPath $StartPath -Recurse -Directory
