Breadcrumbs, windows 7 and file sharing across the domain

I have googled to death the breadcrumb hating from windows 7, and think perhaps that my file shares are just not correct in some way.

Basically, if I access a shared drive, I can use breadcrumbs to go up to parent levels and see things I should not.
If the share is \\server\share\username, I can access my folder, and also access the parent folder with the breadcrumb that win 7 gives me.
However, if I type \\server\share, I do NOT have access to the same folder.  I am confused as to what I am doing wrong.

Thanks!

This has little to do with "breadcrumbs" which are in Windows Vista and 7.  It is a matter of how you have share permissions set up in conjunction with how you have NTFS permissions set up.  If your NTFS permissions are set correctly, you should not be able to traverse a folder above your share (assuming you are WANTING to prevent that).  To assist you further, we need to know:

1) Share permissions for \\server\share
2) NTFS permissions for \\server\share
3) Share permissions for \\server\share\username
4) NTFS permissions for \\server\share\username

Also, do you use Access-based Enumeration on your server or standard enumeration?

I am not sure about the enumeration.

The reason I thought it was a bread crumbs issue is when I enter the \\server\share, if the user does not have access to that folder, he will get the error message stating he does not have access.  However, if \\server\share is a parent directory, and he DOES have access to \\server\share\username then he can use the breadcrumbs in win 7 to click on \\server\share and see whats in the directory.
