restricting access to NTFS shared folders

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
Greetings experts,

Not sure where to post this.

On a win 2003 server in my domain, I had to move an entire shared folder containing about 70 user folders. Before the move only the logged in user and the admin had access, now everyone has access to everyone's folder. How can I restrict access to all except the logged on user without having to explicitly add all other users in the domain and give them deny rights?

thanks in advance
