Make this DFS Share.  
Is there a way to permit a group of users to just have access to a specific directory in a tree and not see the other directories or view the files within it.  For example, In Novell when a specific directory is shared out with sub-folders in it a user can have access to a specific directory and has folder view of others but can't see the files within them that don't belong to them.  In out 2008 share we can see the files in others we don't have access to when mapped to a specific directory within the tree.  Need to know the best way to set this up.  Would like to allow a group of users to access a specific directory with sub folders in it however, some users are not allowed to view some of the sub folders.

You can do this with Access Based Enumeration

2008 and 2008 R2 you can enable this from the Share and Storage Management MMC snap in.

1. Open the Share and Storage Management MMC console (might have to start, run, mmc, and add it if you don't already have one saved.
2. Under the Shares Tab right click the shares you want to enable this on and choose properties.
3. Under the Sharing Tab click Advanced
4. Check "Enable Access-Based Enumeration"

This can also be done from the shared folder's properties sharing tab, but I find it easier to use the Share and Storage snap in.

I was told that the DFS links are pointed to a NAS which is emulating a windows share (were talking traversal rights etc).  However your answer is what I was looking for.

So your shares are not hosted on a Windows 2003 or 2008 server?

Hmmm, Try turning this on in the DFS root share which should be located on the 2008 server.  Not sure if it will work for the DFS links though.  Worth a try.
