Get-NTFSAcess and Get-NTFSEffectiveAccess are two cmdlets from the NTFSsecurity module.

Get-NTFSAcess retrieves the access rights on a folder or file. You can immediately who has what rights and from where the rights are inherited.

Get-NTFSEffectiveAccess by contrast shows the rights YOU (the account you’re using to access the data) have to a file or folder.

This is far superior to Get-Acl where you have to dig through several layers to get the information.

    Sad, but it is impossible to use modules in Invoke-Command without copying on target server.
    Get-Acl works always.
