We have a server 2008 box with multiple shares setup and working well.  However, we just created a new local user account (no active directory here) and when that user connects with his credentials via SMB we want him to only see his specific shared folder.

Thoughts?

I believe that is exactly what we are looking for.  How will that affect our existing shares, and is their a setup guide somewhere as we have not used ABE before

This is very easy to setup which really there isn't any actual setup

The guide which Dariusg provided will explain this stuff.
But essentially, this setting will be enabled on a per-shared folder basis. and you have to go Share and Storage Management to enable it under advanced.

It's actually fairly straightforward and self-explanatory. There is really not any harm you can do by enabling it.
