On server 2012 How do I setup a user to see the top level folder, click on it and then see ONLY their approved folders? What permissions do I give on the very top level for them to be able to go into the folder? Right now they need to go to \\serverA\directory$\myfolders in order for them to see myfolders. I want them just to be able to go to \\serverA\directory$ open it and see myfolders and what ever other folders they have access to.

To setup your file server so that the users can only see what they have access to you will want to enable access based enumeration:

1. First you need to add the File And Storage Services role to the server and reboot the server.
Then go to File And Storage Services in System Manager.
2. Press Shares, select your shared folder, right-click and press Properties.
3.  Under Settings you will find the Enable access-based enumeration-setting.
Enable it and Apply your changes.

As for the hierarchy you will need to enable list or read rights at the top, then using NTFS permissions break in inheritance and apply the AD or direct permissions as per your standards. Ours is that we create a modify and a read AD Groups for each  folder and subfolder depending on the needs and security
