Over the last few weeks we have released updates for two of our most popular tools, NTFS Permissions Reporter and Get Local Admins GUI. Here are the details of the changes in the new versions:
This free tool for locating files that have different permissions to their parent directory is now out of BETA and available to download.
In most cases IT administrators set permissions on folders and then all files within simply inherit permissions from their parent folder. However, sometimes files might unintentionally have inheritance disabled or they might have additional permissions on top of the inherited permissions that should not be there (this can be caused by files being moved rather than copied). So this tool has been developed to help easily locate files that are either not inheriting permissions or do not have identical permissions to their parent folder.
A small update to add 2 useful features to this free tool. More details below
I’m often asked if I can include attributes from a user’s Terminal Services Profile tab in their AD properties in AD Info and AD Tidy, but for whatever reason MS decided to store these attributes in a very strange format so it is not easy. I’ve finally spent some time on it and got something working now and thought I would share my results (and frustration) with the rest of the community in case it helps anyone else out.
