I have MacOS "El Capitan"

About Sharing - File Sharing: When a directory is added to be shared through the Shared Folders pane, then through the Users pane is possible add/remove some Users and Groups according our needs. It through the + and - small buttons

But I did realize the following: when the Staff group is removed, is not possible re-add the same Staff group anymore. It does not appear when + is clicked and then through the small dialog window opened and Users & Groups option is selected. I tried removing and adding again the same target directory to be shared but nothing.

How solve this situation?

If a new or other directory is added through the Shared Folders pane, in the Users pane appears already added the Staff group such as for the previous directory case.

Hold down Option and click the “+” then every group account is shown in addition to users in the list.
