Windows 7: Powershell get-acl help

Powershell get-acl help


I was thinking of making a script for powershell, but it was harder than i thought. I'am a beginner of the beginners when it comes to powershell, so i was wondering if any of you could help me (or maybe make me one) with making one.

This is what i was thinking of(not sure if this is even possible):

When you start powershell you get this line:

"Please type the direction of which folder you want to see a acces list, then press enter"
Example: c:\myscripts <ENTER>

"Please type the folder of where you want to save the .xls file. then press enter"
Example: c:\myscripts <ENTER>

Then i want the possibility to have powerpoint saving the acces list as a excel file in the folder which has been selected.

I've been looking for scripts for the past 3 days, but unfortunately i havent found anything.

Thanks in advantage, ill just continue making failing scripts!


My English isn't that good, if i havent been clear please say so.

Write-Host -ForegroundColor Red "this script lets you export a excel file with the acces list of the folder of your choice.
#gaining info.
$Locatiecheck = read-host -prompt "Please type the direction of which folder you want to see a acces list, then press enter. Example: c:\myscripts"
$Locatiefile = read-host -prompt "Please type the folder of where you want to save the .xls file. then press enter Example: c:\myscripts"

Get-Acl > $Locatiefile
