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

Here is a guide.

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.
