Compare NTFS Security Descriptors

Beyond Compare's Folder Compare cannot compare NTFS security descriptors (permissions).  As a workaround, export the permissions of each folder as text files using Microsoft's icacls tool, then compare the text files in Beyond Compare's Text Compare.

Command line to export folder permissions to a text file:

icacls c:\folder1 /T > c:\folder1perms.txt
