Write a dummy file to the directory, and see if it fails or succeeds. If it succeeds, delete the file :whistle:

(If you need to test for another account than currently logged on, use RunAsSet and then write a file using a Run or RunWait, like running "echo test > \\server\share\test.txt")

The is a simple way of getting all access security information for files or directories local and remote using the MS script called XCACLS.vbs.

You can embed this in AutoIT call it from there and catch the output in a variable.

the syntax for runnning the script is as simple as :

First open CMD enter
Type cscript XCACLS.vbs N:\Temp\*.*  enter

This will give you the security settings of the Mapped N drive of your server and all the sec. info for the folder and files below this fodler.

I hope this gets you going.
