Mass add folder permissions while retaining existing permissions

By AcerReplacer ·
I've got two shared departmental folders that I need to add an account to. I need to add that account to each and every folder contained inside the shared folder itself. Normally, I'd toss the account in Security tab and use the Advanced option to push the permissions out to all child object... however there are several levels of folders that all have very specific permissions on them and I don't want to disturb those. None of them inherit permissions for the parent departmental folders.

Any suggestions on how I can add that account to ever folder without disturbing the existing permissions or doing it by hand?

Shouldn't disturb current permissions.

Have you tested adding the permission then add to all subfolders and files? It should keep those certain permissions and just add the new permission.
