you don't have to write a script. They are already available:

and on windows the "cacls" cmd try "cacls *" on your file server.

to get the list of users in group returned by the above mentioned
utils, you just have to query the AD using LDAP. very easy using a VB

Thanks for the input. I will try those. I am aware of cacls however, what I am looking for is the following.

User A requests that access to folder Z be restricted to Users A,B,C. six months later User A wants to remember who else has access to folder Z. User A simply runs the script or software where he selects Folder A and a message box or something pops up that lists the groups and their members.

Hopefully the software from systernals will let me do this.
