I am trying to alter NTFS permissions on a folder (NOT SHARED). I right click the folder, select properties (I can also select sharing and security), click the security tab, click ADD, and look through available users and groups. this is a domain, and the group i wish to add is a local group. this server was a workgroup with groups prior to being addedd to the domain. Where are my groups/users?

Look at the the 2nd field.. on the Security Tab..
" Locations".. choose your local machine.. your local groups should be there ..
