Find In Use Security Groups on Domain

Custom / NA

Specs: Server 2003, NA
I manage a Windows Server 2003 domain. A long time ago, a bunch of custom security groups were made for configuring shared file access rights. We are re-organizing our company, and would like to remove some of these security groups to avoid confusion go forward. All the security groups have users added as members to them, but as far as I know, non of the security groups are assigned permissions on specific shared folders.

Is there any tool or method to confirm these security groups are not being used with any current shares?

I have never done this before. Maybe a DIR /Q /S but that would only just show you the owners of the files not the assigned ACL. The only time I would consider doing this is if we closed down a department which I have done before but I did not delete the security groups because sometimes managers would want to get into those files. I just removed all the users to the group. This is a strange question. I will have to think on this one.

Here you go. Some wrote a simple VBS to do this...
