NTFSsecurity module

Just came across the NTFSsecurity module. Its available on the PowerShell gallery or from https://github.com/raandree/NTFSSecurity.

The *-Acl cmdlets have been around since Windows PowerShell v1 but aren’t easy to use and don’t cover all our needs.

 

This module contains a number of cmdlets:

Add-NTFSAccess
Add-NTFSAudit
Clear-NTFSAccess
Clear-NTFSAudit
Copy-Item2
Disable-NTFSAccessInheritance
Disable-NTFSAuditInheritance
Disable-Privileges
Enable-NTFSAccessInheritance
Enable-NTFSAuditInheritance
Enable-Privileges
Get-ChildItem2
Get-DiskSpace
Get-FileHash2
Get-Item2
Get-NTFSAccess
Get-NTFSAudit
Get-NTFSEffectiveAccess
Get-NTFSHardLink
Get-NTFSInheritance
Get-NTFSOrphanedAccess
Get-NTFSOrphanedAudit
Get-NTFSOwner
Get-NTFSSecurityDescriptor
Get-NTFSSimpleAccess
Get-Privileges
Move-Item2
New-NTFSHardLink
New-NTFSSymbolicLink
Remove-Item2
Remove-NTFSAccess
Remove-NTFSAudit
Set-NTFSInheritance
Set-NTFSOwner
Set-NTFSSecurityDescriptor
Test-Path2

 

Some of the cmdlets appear to overlap with standard PowerShell cmdlets

Copy-Item2
Get-ChildItem2
Get-FileHash2
Get-Item2
Move-Item2
Remove-Item2
Test-Path2

which needs further investigation.

PS> get-command Test-Path -Syntax

Test-Path [-Path] <string[]> [-Filter <string>] [-Include <string[]>]
[-Exclude <string[]>] [-PathType <TestPathType>] [-IsValid]
[-Credential <pscredential>] [-UseTransaction] [-OlderThan <datetime>]
[-NewerThan <datetime>] [<CommonParameters>]

Test-Path -LiteralPath <string[]> [-Filter <string>] [-Include <string[]>]
[-Exclude <string[]>] [-PathType <TestPathType>] [-IsValid]
[-Credential <pscredential>] [-UseTransaction] [-OlderThan <datetime>]
[-NewerThan <datetime>] [<CommonParameters>]

PS> get-command Test-Path2 -Syntax

Test-Path2 [-Path] <string[]> [-PathType <TestPathType>] [<CommonParameters>]

 

There isn’t a complete set of help files for the module at the moment but some documentation is available through the github repository.

 

This is a Windows PowerShell only module at the moment as it requires System.Windows.Forms but may work on PowerShell core through the Windows compatibility module.
