Password protected network share folders
I want to share 3 folders to 3 computers. And I want to set different passwords to each folder so they can't see each other's files.
I googled but I really can't find the working method. Here's what I tried so far:
I Created a new user Ben, passworded.
Computer Management > System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users > New user...
I shared the folder:
Right click folder > Share with > Specific people > Add Ben > Give Read/Write Permission Level
Result: Didn't work, Network Error, I do not have permission to access, contact administrator.
Right clock folder > Properties > Sharing > Advanced sharing > Permissions > Add Ben to the top list > Check box full control
Result: Didn't work either, same error message
Right clock folder > Properties > Security > Edit > Add Ben to the list > Check box Allow full control
Result: Nope, same
Other settings I changed:
LM & NTLM
Admin Tools > Local Security Policy > Security Settings > Local Policy > Security Options > Network security: LAN Manager authentication level > Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated
Result: Didn't seem to help
LAN Adapter Properties > TCP/IPv4 > Check Box Enabled NetBios
It still doesn't prompt me for user name and password and I can't access as Ben.

This is VERY frustrating. AUGH. Thank god at least remote desktop works so I don't need to run back and forth between the lounge and my room.
There are guides on this problem everywhere but none of them works.
Such as the following:
Add password protection to shared folder access in Windows 7
How To Allow Only One PC To Access A Certain Folder On Wireless Home Network? - Networking
The problem I have is that I can't add my computer into the 'Share with' list. The computer that I want to share files with.
