Exporting security

By default, permissions are exported to a report, which you can save, print, or export. You can export permissions on a folder to a Microsoft® Access® 2000 database (.mdb file) or to a delimited file for use with Microsoft Excel®. You also can export a list of tasks, groups, and users. The list of groups or users includes the account name, type of group or user, account SID, account description, when the account last logged on, number of times the account has logged on, and whether the account is disabled, locked, or expired.

The Export Scheduler displays all the current export tasks. You can add, edit, and delete export tasks.
