Permissions Crawler

Last Modified: 2020-03-03
Hi we're looking for a tool that will help us "crawl" through our file share server to identify some groups and what permissions they have, either directly or inherited. I know some tools that will allow AD account A has file permission to file share B, but we looking for something that will allow us to simply put in AD account A and have it search all the file folders in our file share server for both share permissions and NTFS permissions. Even if it's a PS script, or some 3rd part tool, we don't mind either.
