example, we have a shared folder on the network called "Public" with contains a large amount of folders and subfolders. On the most part permissions are assigned to each folder using Domain Local groups, and AGDLP is followed to the letter for most folders.

I don't want to delete these groups yet as I think they may be still used on some of the older public folders.

Is there any way this can be done?
