Everyone is literally everyone that can hit that system.

Users are local users, and domain users are basically users, but instead of being assigned locally they are assigned by the DC / Active Directory.

Users are local users? so you mean domain users are local users? as by default, in security only has users, there is no domain users. And can you tell me why?

Every one Group:

The Everyone group includes all members of the Domain Users, Authenticated Users group as well as the built-in Guest account, and several other Built-in security identifiers like SERVICE, LOCAL_SERVICE, NETWORK_SERVICE, etc. . This is a built-in group that cannot be modified.

Users:

Members of this group can perform most common tasks, such as running applications, using local and network printers, and locking the server. By default, the Domain Users group, Authenticated Users, and Interactive are members of this group. Therefore, any user account created in the domain becomes a member of this group.

*Users group contains both the local aswelas domain users by default.

Domain Users:

This group contains all domain users. By default, any user account created in the domain becomes a member of this group automatically. This group can be used to represent all users in the domain. For example, if you want all domain users to have access to a printer, you can assign permissions for the printer to this group (or add the Domain Users group to a local group, on the print server, that has permissions for the printer).

After the initial installation of the operating system, only member is the Authenticated Users group(A group that includes all users whose identities were authenticated when they logged on. Membership is controlled by the operating system) of Users group. When a computer joins a domain or promote to DC, the Domain Users group is added to the Users group on the computer.

Hence Users group will have the users which has been created while installing the OS ( Authenticated Users group ) and the Domain Users group.

why I asked this question is that I have a sbs2011 and the RWA include a portal where users can access the share folders. I wanted to share with external clients as well but only the folder I want to give to them. on the client's user member property, I removed eveything except the "windows sbs RWA users" group, but they still able to access share folders. I checked the share folder permission and see that the everyone if in security, I removed it and changed to "users". But they still had access. I then changed to "Domain users" this time and now they don't have access. So "windows sbs RWA users" group is part of the "Users" group as well?  I checked the "member of" property and it was blank though...
