I created a global group and I would like this group to have
FULL CONTROL on a shared folder and ALL of it's subcontainers. The
problem is, many of the subcontainers (probably over 1000) have
specific permissions set on them, so I do not want to reset all folders
to inherit permissions from parent, because some should not have
"everyone". Is there a way just to trickle down (add) 1 group and give
them full control on everything without disrupting existing permissions
sub-folders? Thanks in advanced!

Have a look at the CACLA command. The /E switch will accomplish what you
want.

Scientists were excited this week at having isolated a brief sound which
occurred immediately before the Big Bang.
Apparently, the sound was, "uh oh".

Taht depends on how you've set the permissions below the directory. If
they are inheriting and you've just added extra premissions then jsut
add the group at the top-most directory. Other than that, you'll have to
use cacls as previously mentioned
