I have a backup program that backs up 10 users documents files to the a win 2008 server.  I have a folder on the server that is accessible to everyone and inside I have folders with the names of the users.  I have one user that I don't want anyone to have access to their folder except that user.  What would be the best way to setup this folder on the server so it is accessible only to the 1 user?

Right click on that particular folder, go to properties.

Security Tab - Click on Advanced - Change permissoins->Untick Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent.

Now remove all the users from there or groups. Only keep added System, Administrators and that Single User account whom you want to grant access. If data is very sensitive then you can remove Administrators as well from there, as if any other users who do not want to have access to this folder is part of Administrators he will gain access.

Also you can add individual those users to a Local group on that server and that group can be put into access denied settings. Only single user should be excluded from that restricted Group.

Hope this is clear now to you, and i have not confused you in any way :)
