Most often, sharing is set to everyone/full control.
That way your effective permissions are essentially what you've configured the security to be...

Hope that helps...post back if you need further clarification

You do need to set both permissions. The Share Permissions control who is allowed to access the folder remotely, the Security or NTFS Permissions apply to both users on the local machine AND remote users. As Sirbounty says the most efficient option is to allow Everyone full control on the share and then rely on the NTFS Permissons for the security.

One thing you need to watch is that when you create a share the default share permissions are ‘Everyone’ read, which mean that by default no remote users will be able to change, create or delete files in the share even if they have the necessary NFTS permissions. Hence the recommendation to give 'Everyone' Full control and rely on NTFS to restrict users.
