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

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.
