I tried this ” NTFS” tool and its amazing. It gets all the User Permission from Windows File Server and you can run it on any drives.

1 – I got this free tool from internet, unzipped and installed on machine – Windows 8.1. Then after installation opened the console and it looked like below:

    • Hi Thanks for dropping in. I was conducting a document migration activity from a Record Management System to SharePoint Collabware, and wanted the User Permissions check so that I can apply same in SharePoint using script or manual update. So as the data was migrated from a File Server to SharePoint I wanted to get all User Permissions from Windows File Server that I did using this tool “NTFS”
