    Does anyone know of a tool or program to scan all folders on a server and list all the folder security permissions. I am looking for this for documentation purposes. So i dont have to right click on each folder and manually write down or screenshot my findings. This may be a long shot but who knows.

    Windows Server? Dunno, but if a linux server the command ls -l will give you a list of all folders and permisiions.

    C:\Users\Carpo>dir /?
    Displays a list of files and subdirectories in a directory.

    DIR [drive:][path][filename] [/A[[:]attributes]] [/B] [/C] [/D] [/L] [/N]
    [/O[[:]sortorder]] [/P] [/Q] [/R] [/S] [/T[[:]timefield]] [/W] [/X] [/4]

    [drive:][path][filename]
    Specifies drive, directory, and/or files to list.

    /A Displays files with specified attributes.
    attributes D Directories R Read-only files
    H Hidden files A Files ready for archiving
    S System files I Not content indexed files
    L Reparse Points - Prefix meaning not
    /B Uses bare format (no heading information or summary).
    /C Display the thousand separator in file sizes. This is the
    default. Use /-C to disable display of separator.
    /D Same as wide but files are list sorted by column.
    /L Uses lowercase.
    /N New long list format where filenames are on the far right.
    /O List by files in sorted order.
    sortorder N By name (alphabetic) S By size (smallest first)
    E By extension (alphabetic) D By date/time (oldest first)
    G Group directories first - Prefix to reverse order
    /P Pauses after each screenful of information.
    /Q Display the owner of the file.
    /R Display alternate data streams of the file.
    /S Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories.
    /T Controls which time field displayed or used for sorting
    timefield C Creation
    A Last Access
    W Last Written
    /W Uses wide list format.
    /X This displays the short names generated for non-8dot3 file
    names. The format is that of /N with the short name inserted
    before the long name. If no short name is present, blanks are
    displayed in its place.
    /4 Displays four-digit years

    Switches may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable. Override
    preset switches by prefixing any switch with - (hyphen)--for example, /-W.

    might help, sure you could make a script to pipe the output to a txt file, for example DIR /s /-p >file.txt

    I figured it out. The showacls.exe in the windows 2003 resouce kit does it very nice in CMD.
