When sharing the folder, simply add a "$" at the end of the share name.

Hi boogie5,
oBdA is correct not thats the SHARE name NOT the file name :)

To do this you'll need to remove list folder permission from everyone (if this user is in access list) add built-in user group NETWORK to access list and do not assign list folder permission to them.
