File, Folder and Share Permission Utility Tool Description
Operating system errors related to file and folder access can be typically resolved by finding a workaround to user permissions. PC administrators interested in finding out detailed information about these scenarios can resort to File, Folder and Share Permission Utility Tool.
This is a lightweight program that doesn’t need installation and can be quickly used to generate reports about shares, permissions, even directory permission inheritance. It’s wrapped in a simple interface.
Collects info about file, folder and share permissions
The main window shows everything that File, Folder and Share Permission Utility Tool has to offer. It can read the information of the local computer or any other workstations in the local network. There is no LAN scanner available for the second option, though. Instead, you have to prepare a text document with the local IP addresses of the remote computers and then import them into this tool.
Four different tasks can be carried out by the utility. It can list all files within a specified folder, all shares and permissions from the PC, the folder permission inheritance, as well as permissions on folders and subfolders.
Generates reports in plain text documents
Once the task is complete, File, Folder and Share Permission Utility Tool creates reports and saves the plain text documents in a new folder (called “Reports” placed in the same location as itself). This directory can be opened with one click from the main window.
When it comes to the contents of the reports, you can find out the name, size, type, last modified date, date of creation, and owner of all files within the specified folder, for example. As for the share permissions, the application reveals the users and access type.
It worked smoothly on Windows 10 in our tests and generated reports rapidly while remaining light on resources usage. Thanks to its intuitive interface and options, File, Folder and Share Permission Utility Tool proves to be a straightforward and practical tool for learning permission details about files, folders and shared items.
