Windows 7: Manually sharing a single folder question.

Manually sharing a single folder question.

I manually created a share for a folder on a separate drive for work purposes. I created a limited privileged account because I want there to be a password to log in to access this folder.

When I log in to access this folder under the limited privilege account, I can access my main logins Documents, pictures, and other things that I do not want accessed. I have my user folder set up to not be shared. I do not have a homegroup set up. Why are these files accessible to another users account?

What groups are you and the others in? If neither is admin and both are regualr users that is the problem.

One is admin and one is regular user.. The regular user, accessing the folder remotely, has access to these documents.
