Share permissions on Server 2008 R2 not working - NOT AD server

My client:  Windows 2008 Server set as a Workgroup not an AD.  A folder named APPS has share permissions for all users on the network.  This is where all data resides (in various folders and files).  One of the folders in the APPS folder was shared also and all users had access to that as well.  The person that owns that folder and the very private information in it requested that it not be seen by all and only she have permission.  I have gone in circles now because after removing the inherited rights on this folder only, then unsharing it and resharing it giving the permissions to Everyone, Users and the single user, I continue to get access denied when attempting to open anything within this folder.

\Apps\HoardM       Apps=Share to all and cannot change     HoardM is for one user only.

Can someone please help?  I am logged in to the server remotely now and have access to the users computer also - to test the share when complete.

I think you want something like below:
NET SHARE Apps  /delete
NET SHARE HoardM /delete
NET SHARE Apps=Path to Apps "/GRANT:everyone,FULL"
Icacls pathtohoardm /inheritance:r
NET SHARE HoardM=Path to HoardM "/GRANT:singleuser,FULL"

Thank you.  I followed part of that.  I can't delete the apps share.

This turned out to not fix the issue.  The client shut her computer down last evening and today I cannot get anything to open in her private share.   I can see everything but each time I try to open the file I get the message access denied.  I have tried taking ownership, I have done everything in the Microsoft Knowledge base I could find.   I am at a complete loss as to how to rectify this
