I would like to know if there is a way to display what permissions a group or a user has within the network. For example, we have a shared folder on the network called "Public" with contains a large amount of folders and subfolders. On the most part permissions are assigned to each folder using Domain Local groups, and AGDLP is followed to the letter for most folders.
However, there are a number of folders which have permissions assigned using legacy groups from when the network was an NT domain. I don't want to delete these groups yet as I think they may be still used on some of the older public folders. I therefore want to look at each individual old group and find out where they have permission to on the public folders without going through hundreds of folders to check the permissions. Is there any way this can be done?
