There is never any need to give rights to the root of C:\ for users. Only the OS should have rights there. Anything else is a huge security risk, and besides that can also cause OS corruption.

You can share the root of the C: drive just like you would for any other folder, however your users (which I assume are admins) are going to have massive problems trying to even save files to the root of the C: drive due to UAC.

As per rindi's comment above, this is not something I'd recommend doing. Can you just share the folders in the C: drive that the users require access to instead of sharing the entire C: drive?

Thanks for the comments.  Sorry it has taken long to respond.  Eventually convinced admin that we needed to do it differently. Did not share the root of C:
