  • Hi ,

    Does anyone know of a way to export DFS shares and permissions set to a file? I like to document all the settings in place but seems like a alot of work for hundreds of folders.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi,

    I think you would like to export the share and NTFS permissions of a "shared folder" instead of a "DFS share", as the permissions are actually not related to DFS.

    For export NTFS permissions, you could try icacls command with /save parameter.

    Share permissions are stored in following registry key:


    So you need to output the registry key as a backup.
