Access Enumerator

A recent enquiry led me to find a piece of software by sysinternals called AccessEnum (Access Enumerator). This tiny tool will scan the contents of a directory and list the permissions for all subfolders and files.

You can then export this list to a text file for analysis.….s/bb897332.aspx

  1. Unless I’m using it wrong, this tool only shows files/folders that have different security to their parent folders. It’s not like showacls which shows the whole hierarchy.
