I am running an SBS 2003 Server with a shared drive which houses all our files, users authenticate to the server and are given access to the files they need.  There is one user that is going to be remotely accessing the server and needs permission to only one sub folder in order to open a QB Database and do work within it.  My question is what is the best practice under SBS 2003 to grant that 1 user permission to the sub folder and the files contained within without giving her access to any of the other files on that share?  Thanks in advance for the help!

Will that effect any of the other permissions that the users currently have for the folder?  Thanks for the help.

Yes it will affect other users. If you are sure the user only requires to access one folder you can "DENY" his/her access to other folders.
