How to share with specific PC on network in HomeGroup

Im using Windows 7 Ultimate.
Well i have 4 pc's in my home group (All have windows 7 ultimate). All are connected to each other under Home Groups. I wanted to share a folder but to only one pc.

i.e.

- Total PC's: PC1, PC2, PC3, PC4

- All are connected through Home Group (home group was created on pc1)

- I want to share a specific folder between PC1 and PC2 so that PC3 and PC4 wont be able to see/access it.

Please provide me with instruction on how to do that. I hope my question is clear.

Thanks.

This is not the only way but it is fairly simple.

1) On PC1 create a folder that is part of the HomeGroup area or that HomeGroup has access to.
2) Edit the permissions to only allow User1 on PC1 and User2 on PC2 to have access to the folder.

The other machines will see the folder but will not have access because they are not in the permissions group.
