To create Home folder for each user I have to use  \\FileServer\User\%username%.  This will create folder with username automatically.  I have to give User folder Authenticated permission access for both Share and NTFS, for the folder to be created and access.  The only problem with this is everyone can access everyone else shared folder.  

How can I make the folder that is created automatically to have ownership for that user only, And can be accessed by that user only?

    Hide User first (with a $).

    hide with $
    After the path is: \\FileServer\User$\%username%

    After brake the permissions (inheritance)
    Give Authenticated Users this permission

    permission auth users
    Give Creator Owner full control after you should only have this user names.
    My recommendation never change permission for SYSTEM or Administrators.

    Creator Owner

    I did what you said, but didn't work.

    From security if I click on CREATOR OWNER full control, it will get dis checked automatically.  have to go to advanced, as you see from the picture that has full control.

    still all users can access other user's shared folder

    You didn't do what I told you. You must only have Creator Owner, Authenticated Users, SYSTEM and Administrators.
    Remove other Usernames. This will only work for new folders you cteate after this settings.

    For existing folders, you have to do this manually. Instead Creator Owner you will have to add the user self. How many existing folders (home folders) do you have?
