FTP Server

I'm configuring an FTP server on Windows 2003 server.
Scenario 1: Static IP--ftp site; Anonymous connection-disabled (unchecked); Home Directory- C:\Hme w/read;write (checked); no isolation;
Tested with 3 users (user1;user2;user3);l User1(admin.rights); User2 and 3 (only user rights)
Folder structure: C\Home (not shared; security-User1-full; User2-read/execute);  next.. created sub-folders Test1; Test2; Test3 (example: C:\home\test1; C:\home\test2; and ...\test3)
Test1;2 and 3 shared. Test1 (shared to User1-full;user2-read/execute; Security-same)
Test2(shared to User1-Full; User2-Limited; Security-same)
Test3(shared to User1-full;User2_read/execute; User3-read/execute; Security-same)

I type  ftp:\\IP address and get to a security window enter User2 (for example) credentials and see the whole structure but can only open folders that I allowed to each user.
Scenario 2: Created the same environment only with user isolation (for local users, not in AD).  Can't login...

I need to create an environment that users when logged in can only see folders that they have access to.

Thank you for your help in advance,
