NTFS Permissions Reporting

NTFS Permissions reports on Files, Folders and Shares using Admin Report Kit for Windows Enterprise.

There are several powerful features available in Admin Report Kit for Windows Enterprise to generate reports on NTFS permissions on files and folders residing in servers and workstations across multiple domains in the network. All reports may be scheduled and generated for multiple computers, users, and groups for multiple domains as a batch job.

The Permissions Reports section under the built-in reports feature (out-of-the-box reports) includes specific reports that report exclusively on reporting the access permissions assigned to users and groups on files, folders and shares. Our NTFS permissions reporting tool has several flavors of reports designed specifically for the administrator’s convenience.

The following questions can be easily answered using these multi-dimensional reports:

  • Given a selected set of Users and Groups, which files and folders do they have access to across computers in a domain?
  • Given a selected set of files, folders and shares across computers, which users and groups have access to these?
  • Which users have inherited access permissions by virtue of their group membership (even though they may not have been granted explicit permissions)?
  • What permissions have been assigned to users both explicit and inherited through nested groups? One single report showing both.
  • What are the net effective permissions for users and groups on a set of folders?
  • How are nested groups affecting NTFS permissions on files and folders?

Here is a walkthrough of how to generate NTFS Permissions Reports using Admin Report Kit for Windows Enterprise (ARKWE):
