Is complicated, combination of permissions and restricted sharing, but can be done.  Hope you understand.

Group ABC needs to be members of a group, say we call it "left", and DEF belongs to a group called "right".  On all machines, you share printers, and then you allow access to the printers to user group left and right.  On ABC's directory shares, you assign restricted permissions only to the user group "right".  Then on DEFs file/directory shares, you assign permissions only to the group "left".  That does it.

You will need to turn off simple file sharing on all computers and make all access permission based, and make sure that the 2 groups cannot aquire the permissions of the other group.  It is easy in theory, but you will probably struggle somewhat with the details, as permission file sharing is not immediately obvious.
Hi Abs_jaipur,

just drill down with NTFS permissions - if you want to get down to such specific rights, just use NTFS and create permissions per user
