I have created a new domain local security group.  I want members of this group to have access to users home-drive shares.

I don't want to manually add the group to the ACL of each users share.

I thought that it would be a case of adding the new group to the ACL of the root directory holding the user shares and within the advanced tab checking "replace permission on child objects" - but this will remove the permissions for the specific user of the homedrive.

Is there an easy way for me to add this group to all user shares?

Thanks in advance.
