Here is a vbscript that will allow you to hide folders. To change permissions on folders you will need to run a powershell script. This should help:

Hope this helps.

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

'-----------------------------------------------------------------------

' Hide Folders

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strRun1 = "attrib -s -h C:\Temp"
strRun2 = "attrib -s -h C:\Temp2"

objShell.run "cmd /c " & strRun1,0,True
objShell.run "cmd /c " & strRun2,0,True

'-----------------------------------------------------------------------

WScript.Quit

Open in new window

Well using can use a GP to easily control access to objects: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc756952(v=ws.10).aspx

But you want users to be only able to access one folder yet not see the C:\ drive
Are you using a RDP server? can you give a bit more history on why you need this? Maybe there is another options for you
