Folder Permissions

NTFS folder permissions and access reports

For efficient folder management, it is important to regularly monitor NTFS permissions and specify the level of inheritance. However, performing these tasks using native tools like PowerShell scripts can prove to be a cumbersome process.

On the other hand, with ADManager Plus' Permissions For Folders report, administrators can check, analyze, and manage Windows folder/file permissions, while executing the appropriate measures to enhance NTFS folder security. The generated reports can also be exported in CSV, HTML, PDF, CSVDE, and Excel file formats.
