Over the last few weeks we have released updates for one of our most popular tools, NTFS Permissions Reporter. 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
The public BETA of my new Active Directory permissions reporting tool is now available to download. Read on for more details and a video of the tool in action.
This update includes a few features that a lot of people have been asking for, such as the ability to compare reports, export to a file format that can be loaded back in to the application at a later date, and full 64 bit support.
I made the original version of this tool a while ago and it was made very quickly just as a favour for someone that wanted something simple that could show them the members of the local Administrators group on several remote computers. Today I finally got chance to update and improve it.
