yes for the most part just right click on the folder click on sharing assign the permissions that you want. here you can remove everyone and add just the user(s) you want to have access to the folder. you can also assign what type of user they aree.g. ADMIN, USER..etc. This answer is only valid for a few operating systems and it also depends on if you're on a domain or a workgroup...hope it helps........JT

Agreed, but also be careful. Folder permissions override file permissions. If you give a particular user only Full permission to a specific file, but the folder is set to DENY, your guy won't be able to even acess the folder to get to the file.
Also, something else I ran into alot, only change those permissions independently on the files and/or work folders that's necessary. Setup these folders & Files either under their own shared directory or on a separate resource drive. Changing the permissions on program or OS folders/files (ie setting Deny permissions on the "Documents and Settings" or the "Program Files" folder in root directory of WinXP) tends to have a negative effect. It's funny now, but spend a day racking your brain and it's a different story. HAHAHA
