There is a free nifty tool from Somarsoft called dumpsec that should be able
to do what you want as far as enumerating permissions for you. If you want
to migrate at a later time, your options include Active Directory Migration
Tool, Robocopy, or Xcopy with the /o switch that can copy explicit
permissions. Good luck. --- Steve
