Remove multiple access paths to file server directories

Background / Value

Multiple access rights often occur through nested AD group memberships. They are often a symptom of a confusing group and AD structure. Access rights to a particular resource should only be achieved through one group membership. ARM allows you to remove multiple access paths quickly and easily.
