Windows 2008 Access Based Enumeration not working?

By JMakowski ·
I think I saw someone ask this before but never got an answer.

We have a Windows 2008 Server Enterprise server sharing out files. In some sub-directories, we want to limit what a user sees. So if there are 3 directories and a user only has rights to 1, we want them only to see the 1 in Explorer. ABE is supposed to do this, but is that only regarding the initial folders off of the Share? Does it extend deeper?

For example, the Share is \\Server\Files and we have a folder called Users under this (\\Server\Files\Users). Under Users, each user has their own folder. If we have 100 users, we don't want User99 seeing all of the other folders in their list. They should only see User99 under \\Server\Files\Users\. But it doesn't seem to work.

Even if User99 has 0 rights to the other user folders, they still see them.

Is ABE "broken" in this sense? We're migrating from Novell NetWare to Windows File Servers and we want our users to have as similar a user experience with the Windows shares as they did with NetWare folders. Not seeing folders you didn't have rights to was normal under NetWare, but seems to be difficult to achieve even under Windows 2008.

Any help?
