I strongly suggest you *not* use individuals for permissions - use AD

Thank you for the advice. I was recently hired at this corporation,
and I'm working toward exactly as you stated. I'm going to end up
creating hundreds of security groups (simply because of the size of
the company, and the need for it). But to do so, I'm going need to
find these users in the thousands apon thousands of folders. So I'm
using this script to find them all. Thank you for the advice though, I
should have stated exactly what my reasoning was.

Im also doing similar excersizes with cleaning up old computer accounts,
users, permissions are on the agenda too.

Have a look at a very useful tool - dumpsec - which is now offered free -
i've been running various reports with it today - it should give you plenty
of options and is very straight forward.
