Access to subfolder without having access to parent folder

By cdlondon ·
I need for a user to be able to access a subfolder by browsing through the directories, but I don't want the user to be able to see any files in any of the folders above this folder.
Does anyone know how to accomplish this?
I have given the user the traverse folder permission, but that doesn't work.
They seem to only be able to browse through the folders if I give them read rights on the folders. This however, allows them to see the files in the folders.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Why allow browsing?

If the user doesn't need to see anything in any of the parent directories, just map directly to the subdirectory.

edit: clarify

Try this - you can hide the folders and only allow the user to see the exact folder he needs to see - great tool
