Restricting access to folders in a workgroup

  wavesailor 11:21 14 Jul 05

What are the steps required to restrict access to certain users to sensitive folders in a workgroup? I really need to be able to attach a user name and password to these folders so they may be seen but not accessed by everyone.

I have tried turning off simple file sharing but I can't find any information to help me set up network security only adding users to each workstation! am I missing something here.

What is the operating system?

Win XP Pro
I have now created a test share folder: Added a user with identical name and password to my no1 system, browsed through the network on my system no2 and accessed the folder. Trying to access it with another workstation no3 access is denied which is almost what I need.
This method seems rather long winded I would like to be able to right click a folder and to tick a box password required which I think was an option in win98
