  • Script runs but hangs and doesn't complete

    • The list started running and I could see the results in the results file, but it appears to hang and not complete?  I've been waiting over 20 minutes to see if the file size will change or the last entry and it has, still the same.  Any ideas?  So far, I don't see any errors.
    • This happens to me, but I am aware that there are many folders that hit recursion depth limitations based on whether it is a network share or relative folder. M$ is bs with this and it is a major PITA for trying to do anything as an admin with. Could be the same problem as me, I would most likely bet on that.
    • not recursion depth, I meant path length.
    • I have created this small query to do a job
      $path = Read-Host "Enter the path you wish to check" 
      $filename = Write-Host $path
      $date = Get-Date
      $path >> folderpermissions.csv
      Get-Acl -Path $path | Format-List AccessToString >> folderpermissions.csv 
      let me know your thoughts
  • Will not work for my shared network folder

    • Hello,
      I ran this script and it works great for folders on my computer but when I try to run it for a folder that is in a shared network location I only get column headers on my results file, the rest is empty.  Is there something I need to change to have this work for a shared network folder?
      Thanks in advance,
  • It works
