Get the Access Control List entries on a resource using PowerShell

PowerShell comes with the Get-ACL cmdlet that allows you to see who has security rights to a resource  Below is the syntax:

(Get-ACL –Path path).Access

The path is a location (eg. C:\Logs) that you want to enumerate the ACL for. We first need to create the ACL object before we can view it.  To do that, we encase part of this command in parenthesis.  Once the command completes, we ask for the Access properties.  Below is sample output.

FileSystemRights  : FullControl
AccessControlType : Allow
IdentityReference : BUILTIN\Administrators
IsInherited       : True
InheritanceFlags  : None
PropagationFlags  : None

FileSystemRights  : 268435456
