Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.

This program will scan the trustee rights assigned to all the user, group, and organizational objects in the tree for the selected volume, and output them to a file. The file produced is a simple text file.

The program can then be used to add these trustees back using this file. The main advantage it has over the RIGHTS command, is that it can assign trustees to files/folders with long names.


To read the trustee rights, select the Read Trustees tab, simply enter the name of the tree, and select the volume from the list. This will produce a text file with the users that have access rights to that volume.

To add the rights (for example, after a server upgrade), select the Write Trustees tab, click on the Write Trustees button, and select the file containing the rights.

Please add a comment on this page if you use this program.

New with this version: This update overcomes the problem of server and/or volume name having multiple '_' characters in the name by prompting the user to check the details before continuing.
