I need to know how I can export or extract all the users and groups from a
long list of shared folders.

Not sure what you are trying to do. The files and folders are not tied to
users/groups other than the acls (permissions). I'm sure there is a way to
programmatically retrieve the acl list given the folder/file name, but you'd
have to log it to a database or text file, manipulate it to sort out
duplicates, and when you were done what would you have? Just a list of
users. You can get that by exporting from ADUC. If you wrote it to a
database, you could probably generate a report that spat out a list of users
and all of the folders thay had permissions to, type of permissions, etc.
But it'd take a good bit of code at several levels to do all that.

I have several folder shares throughout a entire network with hundreds of
shares that I need to find out who has the exact permissions in each folder.
A client needs to clean up all of these in case there are people in shares
they shouldnt be and have the approperiate permissions, either from changing
roles, branches, or departments, plus in case someone is just plain not
suppose to be in there. Someone told me they saw a script or utility that
was capable of doing this

FWIW, it sounds like a poorly-managed network that got out of control.

You may want to check out www.visualclick.com, as they have some stuff
that may help. I don't work for them, have stock in them, or anything
like that.

Google 'dumpsec' and use that. Sounds like what your looking for.

Thanks Andrew. There was a software application I found called Hyena that
was able to extract all of the info about shares and export it to an Access
database.
