NTFS Folder/File Permissions

I need to add a new group to our shared file server to be able to change the security on folders. If I add the group to the top level and propigate the changes down i can change the permissions on all the folders that are allowed inherited permissions, however on any foler where this is removed, a personal folder for a user, I cannot see the security tab at all. Is there a GPO to hide the security tab or script that i can run to add the new group to every folder/file without removing exsiting permisssions?

Administrators should be able to see the permissions on any folder.  Howerver, the default permission on a user folder does not add the administrator to the folder rights.  

therefore, if you want to do this, you will have to take ownership of all the folders....  Then edit the permissions to add the administrator to the NTFS rights...  Finally, you can edit the permissions to add this other group.

I would use CACLS or XCACLS to do this...

XCACLS *.* /T /E /G:Administrator:O

So your saying that I am going to have to reset the permissions on 300 Gb worth of folders and files to add a new support group to my staff that doesn't have administrator access?
