Exporting NTFS Security settings to a file?

    I just started a new job and ntfs security for the various folders is not
    documented. So I have been viewing the security tab for folders which is
    very time consuming.

    Is there a way to export ntfs security settings for the directory using the
    command line, or a utility, to a text file.

    Thanks much!

    Ryan, this helps quite a bit. Do you know if there is a way to display not
    only the parent folder, but also the child folders without having to drill
    down and rerun the command at each level?

    Also, do you know what (OI) (CI) (IO) mean?

    Thanks much!

    The /T switch will make the command go through ALL subordinate folders. The
    abbreviations are the key that denotes permissions that are effectively set
    through inheritance vs. permissions explicitely set on a file or folder.

    Yes, I did see the /t and got that to work, but had already sent my previous
    post. Thanks for explanation regarding (OI) (CI) (IO).

    Thanks much, you have been a big help.
