This article describes how to print all folder and file permissions from one folder using the Xcacls.exe utility that is included in Microsoft Windows NT Resource Kit.
You can use the Xcacls.exe utility to print the permissions for files and folders contained in a folder, but you cannot print the permissions for folders and files contained in the subfolders.

To use the Xcacls.exe utility, follow these steps:

  1. From the folder in which you installed the Windows NT Resource Kit,copy the Xcacls.exe file to the root folder in which you wouldlike to print permissions
  2. At the command prompt, type the following line, and then pressENTER
    XCACLS *.* > C:\filename.txt
    where filename is the file name that you want to use for the folderand file permissions.
NOTE: The default installation location for the Windows NT Resource Kit is C:\NTreskit. On the Windows NT Resource Kit CD-ROM, the Xcacls.exe file is located in D:\platform\Netadmin, where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive and platform is your computer platform, such as i386 or Alpha.
