Export folder permission using PowerShell

Recently we where moving folder and shares from one server to another. We need to confirm that the folder and permissions were the same on both the old and new share.

To do this I used PowerShell to export the pre and post move permissions and compare the results.

The two commands to get most of the information will be Get-ChildItem and Get-Acl.  The only part of the scripts that will need to be changed is the the export file name to give it a custom name.

Below is the link to full script I will be using.


To run the script there will be two mandatory parameters and the command should look like the below. (If you want to look up all subfolders also then just change line 14 and add -Recurse to Get-ChildItem command)

.\Get-FolderPermissions.ps1 -FolderPath \\lab-host01\sources -ExportPath D:\Scripts\Folder_Permissions\Export

I ran the script and changed the exported csv name to pre and post to be used to compare.
Below is what the export should look like.
Once the pre and post export are done we can use compare-object to find any differences.
Just need to update the import-csv paths, I was moving to a share that would have the same FQDN so if that is not the case you can removed the FolderPath from the compare-Object property otherwise all result will not match.
Below is the link to the script I used.
Below is the export results showing the difference between the pre and post move Per6
