Improve adding groups to "Volumes" and "Database" policies

Currently, when changing the scope of a policy, the new scope overrides the old scope once saved.  This only occurs for database policies and volume policies, not virtual machine policies.  For example, if i have a policy and the scope is for group 1, 2, and 3, but i want to add group 4 without removing 1, 2, and 3, I have to select all four groups.  This becomes an issue when you have a policy with 20+ groups and you want to add just one more group.  You have to find and reselect all 20 groups along with that 1 group.  We use policies to exclude groups from resize actions.  We have a large environment so there are a lot of groups that tend to be excluded and groups change by the week.
