Hi, I dont really know a simple way to ask this question. I am administering a WIN2k Domain and would liek to tidy up a few years of people bodging the AD with quick fixes. Basically i want to start again with OU's, Groups, and permissions to shared resources. The question I have is: Is there any kind of software that will go through all shared folders on a server and tell me what groups/users are are permitted to read/write to them, or even to search for specific users/groups through all shared folders. I hope this makes sense. Many Thanks in advance, Darren

“Security Explorer” from ScriptLogic.

This is an excellent GUI and command line ACL tool. We use it quite a bit. It’s well worth the $$$ to manage Windows file permissions.
