What do you mean by a list of users? Those connected to a share? Those listed in an access control list?

A list of who has access to the share so most probably the ACL. I have had no joy yet in getting users I have managed to get owners and permissions but not users.

You're hoping to resolve whatever is in the access control list to a set of users?

I might be confusing the situation I need a list of users that has access to the shared folder.

There are two different sets of permissions governing access, share and NTFS. I imagine you want the share permissions, but you'll have to take whatever is in there and work out users.

Starting with Share rights, are you able to run this? I can't remember if the command is available on 2008. No problem really if it's not.

Ok I will give this a try in the morning but all the file services shares are controlled through NTFS permissions in and the share aspect has everyone in most of them. will this work for that sorry for dumb questions. complete novice with shares.
