How to find out what access users have in Windows?

Many times you need to find out what access a particular windows user has and it’s not very easy to get that information. I wanted to get a list of folders/directories to which a particular user (local user in windows) had access to so that i could debug an application. Luckily, i found about a small command line utility tool which enables you to do just that. You will need to download the AccessCheck program and use it to get the access report.
