If these were PDF files, you could password-protect the files, or if you Zip up the folders you could set a password that way.

Since you have to give Full Control to change folder permissions, Full Control means just that, and file permissions in the folder are irrelevant in this case.

The only way I can think of making this work is to create a script that automates the process, and it hides the folders from the user. In effect the script would have to run with elevated privileges on the server, while the user only has the capability to run the script, not get to the files or folders.
