This is another vbs script to find out the local computer for any shared folder. Please see the script contents,

   strComputer = "."
Set objSWbemLocator = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")
Set objWMIService= objSWbemLocator.ConnectServer(".", "root\cimv2")
Set colShares = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Share Where Type=0")
For each objShare in colShares
    Wscript.Echo "Name: " & objShare.Name  & vbCrLf _
                       & "Path: " & objShare.Path & vbCrLf  _
                       & "Type: " & objShare.Type  & vbCrLf _
                       & "Allow Maximum: " & objShare.AllowMaximum & vbCrLf _
                       & "Maximum Allowed: " & objShare.MaximumAllowed & vbCrLf _
                       & "Caption: " & objShare.Caption  
Wscript.Echo "---------------------------------"

Using this script, I manage to get the list of shared folders. How about if I want to know the share/ntfs permissions of the shared folder, what should be added into the script?

Thanks in advance
