Sharing files between 2 PC's

Hi Guys,
Please can anyone help me out with this one.

I have 2 PC's running Windows 7 with a home group set up.
PC1 has two users.
User 1
User 2
With two shared folders set up for each user.

and PC2 has two users.
User 1
User 2

Home group works ok with the two shared folders set to everyone.
On PC 2 both users can access them fine.

But I want to do is.
on PC2 I only want User 1 to be able to access PC1 user 1 folder &
on PC2 I only want User 2 to be able to access PC1 user 2 folder

In a homegroup is it all or nothing?

Many thanks guys

Hi billynw, this is how I used to do it then I found Skydrive. As you have 2 users on your pc, the settings on page 3 of my pdf will be different, I am unable to help in that respect. File sharing.pdf

Thanks for your help here Roderunner.
I have tried out google's drive, like skydrive.
Synced my documents for & works a treat, really impressed.

I'm running 2 version of Win 7 on oracle VM and just messing about at the moment.
But i'm sure I can't do what I'm trying to do, Like I said i think its share with everyone or owner & admin only.

Thanks agian

oh yea great site here guys
