Windows 7: Shared folder and disallow sharing of subfolder

10 Jan 2016   #1

Host: Windows 10 Professional x64, VMs: Various (mainly windows 7 custom builds)
Shared folder and disallow sharing of subfolder

I want to share a folder on my laptop, but a subfolder needs to not be shared, I currently have 'everyone' set to read only on the share (as this is what's needed') but I want to prevent access for everyone to the subfolder over the share (not locally), but I cannot seem to find a way to do so.
I could set 'everyone' to deny full permissions on the local permissions but that would prevent both local and network access, that's unsuitable because I still need local access. Is there a solution?
