Is there a way in Visual Basic to access the list of Windows NT user / group
permissions for a specified file or directory? That is, the list that is
displayed if you select Properties for a file/dir, then click on the Security
tab, then push Permissions? I need to write a tool that lists discrepancies
between the permissions on a folder and the permissions of its files and
subfolders.

I'd also be interested if you know of a tool that already does this.
