The users need full control permissions to their folder and be owner of the
folder. The users group should also full control permissions to the share.
You right click a folder, select properties - security to manage ntfs
permissions. Anyone who knows the path to the share can see the share
contents if they have at least read permissions to the share but not access
a folder in a share unless they have permissions to the folder.. There is an
exception with SP1 if you are using access based enumeration as shown in the
second link below. The first link below may help you in determining
permissions needed for your users.
