CrucibleDPA is an NTFS File Permission Auditor. It quickly and easily displays the effective permissions of any user for any given file or directory on your file servers. The key advantage of CrucibleDPA is that it displays effective permissions. It does not just simply show the access control entries for the ACL, but instead calculates what a user or group can actually do. It does this by accounting for NTFS Permissions, Share Permissions, Nested Shares, Folder Inheritance, Inheritance Flags, Propagation Flags, Group Membership, Active Directory Membership and File Ownership. CrucibleDPA also displays who has been accessing or changing files and when, all in an easy to read chart or list, allowing you to identify who really owns a file when multiple people are modifying it.
