i do have a file server here in the company wich growed over the last years worse and worse.
I found out that there are a lot of files/folders where also the admin  do not have access rights to. We need to delegate the rights to change the permissions to the helpdesk wich is for shure not admin onto the file server itself.
Now i do need to find a power shell command or a vb script (xcacls) or something like that, which is allowing me to ADD ADDITIONAL rights for a group or a user to all folders i do have onto a Volume or share or path .. whatever. The result shud be that the actually rights are not changed, just added with another modify rights to the specified usergroup.
The trick is it should be also working for such folders where the inheritable permission is set to off ..
Anyone can help me please ?
Many thanks in advance  ..
