Verify if domain account can access 100s of file shares.

Hi All

Does anyone have a Powershell script to share that would do the following ?

1) gets the path form a text file .. example below .. with 100s  of paths
2) checks if a set of domain credentials can access each share.
3) output CSV with each path and if the account was able to access the share or not .

Are you assigning permissions directly to the account or are you assigning the account to groups which should have access... I'm trying to picture a scenario where a system is setup properly and this must be done...
MilesLoganAuthor Commented:
so basically , I want to test if the account which is not added to any groups can access any of those shares.
Some of those shares are incorrectly configured and open to everyone , so if the account can access it , then its set up incorrect .

similar to

Test-Path \\share\folder1
when it returns True or False

You can do a efficetive permission report via the Get-PacEffectiveAccess function
Get-PacEffectiveAccess c:\folder -Principal Username
