NTFS Permissions Auditor - Screenshots and Features

Hierarchical folder view

Get full Windows Explorer style Folder tree view. View detailed information by clicking on the desired folder. Detailed information includes full path, owner, last modified, permissions inherited flag and full list of permissions. This is great if you want to check specific folders and see who has which any to this folder.

Principal view

A table with a possibility to expand its rows and see which folders this account can access and what exact permissions are. This is great if you are looking for answers to where specific users or groups can access.

Change reports

Track all folder permission changes since the last report. You can compare two audit results and see what has changed. The change reports will show which directories, directory permissions, and group members have been removed, added and modified.

Account information

See main information about the account - display name, security identifier (SID), description and additional data like department, manager, job title, etc. For group accounts, you can get information about direct and nested group members.

Filter manager

Create simple and advanced filters with built-in filter manager. You can use these filters in the audit process or apply them after the audit is done. Sample filter shown in this figure will only find folders with permissions to "Mike King" and only if permissions are "Full Control" or "Modify" or "Special". For example, if the folder has permissions to the group "Managers" and "Mike King" is a member of this group then NTFS Permissions Auditor will find and include it in audit results.

Exclude directories and accounts

Exclude unnecessary directories by specifying the exact path or just directory name. Exclude system directories and reparse points from your audit results. Limit audit depth by specifying directory depth limit. Exclude disabled accounts and specific accounts from audit results.


You can export audit results to various file formats like Excel(XLSX), CSV, XML, HTML, and PDF. Exports can be done in two ways - folder view export (broken down by folders) and principal view export (broken down by accounts).
