I have a folder that needs to be shared. Within this folder i have 100's of folders. I want all to have read access but just some specific people to have write access.
I have created few groups in the server and added some domain users into each group so each group is added to a set of folders and they have write access. This does not work

Can i know the correct way to handle this

I have these groups created locally on the server i have shares
All users are domain users

Create a group in domain who need full access. Add members who you need to this group.
Remove inherited permissions of the folder and give everyone read perimssion and give full permission to this new domain group

Please let me know if you have any issues

Root folder that has 100 folders has Domain users group with read access. Now the 100 folders i have need to add 1 group for every 10 folders which has different user names in each group with write access

yes.  but you have to add the domain members to the group which you created.

But I suggest you create a domain group. Its upto you. if you feel comfortable with local group you go ahead with your idea. Both do the same. but everytime you have to login to that particular server to change permission.

1. Root folder give everyone full access and do not inherit?

2. Add the write groups and give fill access to the sub folders?

Agree with making this a Domain Group.  You can include the name of the Server with the share in that group if need be.

shares work on two permission levels,
share level
ntfs level
The most restrictive takes precedence.
Give everyone READ WRITE at the share level
at the ntfs level give everyone READ
and give each writegroup write access in the ntfs permissions
