If you are in domain environment, then you can share for a particular person (UESR) who is a member of the domain but not for a particular computer.

You just fill out the sharing tab

in the folder's properties. Share it, limit users to 1 or two or however many might be legitimately using it at one time. Permissions - add the exact user (user profile name) whi is allowed to access it. Set read/write/full permissions. Caching - allow ofr disallow it. Fine tune it to your satisfaction, if necessary.

What you are asking for is <i>exactly</i> what sharing is all about.

You share the file with a USER. You enter their Windows profile USER NAME. Only that user can access the file.

Have you even looked at the sharing tab yet?
