I would like to have a tool that shows ACL's for all folders on a share on a server(Win2k3). I have tried using srvcheck but would like something that goes into sub folders and shows security settings as well if possible.

Maybe I am simply not using it correctly?

Would cacls work, or are you looking for only ACLs of folders? – jscott Jan 10 '12 at 19:45
Are you just looking to audit {accessenum} access, or did you need to export the full ACL? – Zoredache Jan 10 '12 at 22:27
And what do you mean by "show"? "Show" as in "list precisely" or as in "give me a colored pie-chart with hardly any relation to the real state of affairs"? – the-wabbit Jan 11 '12 at 0:15

How about SysInternals' AccessEnum?

Look what I just found for you:

RMTSHAR.exe. A Microsoft tool. The download is from Microsoft's FTP.

Usage: RMTSHARE \\server \\server\sharename

Share permissions are inherited all the way down, unless you have a share inside a share.

Also I don't know what you mean by "show security settings as well."
