There are two sets of permissions, folder (ntfs) and share.

You grant folder permissions by right-clicking the folder and choosing Properties, then the Security tab.

When you share the directory, there is a Permissions button underneath the share name. Click the Permissions button and give it more permissions than the default (Everyone, READ)
