I would like a SP 2010 Powershell script which searches all folders in a library and finds the ones that do not inherit permissions from their parent.

Does anyone have one handy? I'm new to the whole powershell/sharepoint idea, so not sure how to go about this yet.

Cheers, Daniel


Try this:

asnp microsoft.sharepoint.powershell
$web = Get-SPWeb "http://yoururl"
$list = $web.Lists["YourLibrary"]
$list.Folders | ft Name, HasUniqueRoleAssignments
  • We used your script successfully, but instead of "Folders" used "items" -> $list.Items | ft Name, HasUniqueRoleAssignments – user15432 Apr 15 '13 at 10:51
