I have a group which is granted NTFS permissions on top Level of a shared folder.  The shared folder is used for homedrives.

I need to get rid of the complete group, how should I do this?  I need to delete the group in AD and remove all the permissions which is granted to the group.  Please see attached screenshots.  I am talking about the group NSMProxyRights.

thanks

Delete this group on Share tab and Security tab and then in AD.

But what happens to child folders?  Are the permissions overwritten again from the parent folder once I remove the group?  

How about this plan?:
 1. write a powershell script which disables inheritance and leaves the permissions incl inherited permissions as they are.
 2. remove the group from the ntfs permissions using a powershell script.
 3. enable inheritance again.

If inheritance is OK permissions will deleted correctly from top folder to child folders and files.

that or it will be orphaned  and since the SID doesn't translate to any account it is effectively useless.
