AccessEnum

This definition is part of our Essential Guide: IT admin's guide to the Sysinternals suite
Contributor(s): Ben Rubenstein

AccessEnum is a free Sysinternals tool that offers administrators a view of the full file system and registry security settings to ensure that users have appropriate permissions to access files and directories.

AccessEnum offers similar functionality to AccessChk, an executable file that works within the command line.
