Active directory GPO shares

I have 100 users
User 1 , user2 ... User100
U have a folder called private that is shared.

Inside of the shared folder there should be 100 folders named.
User1, user2....user100.

Every user should have a folder named after his account. Inside of private.

Right now it's working fine. That every user has accessto his private folder

Is there a way to hide the other folders so the user can ONLY SEE his private folder, inside of the main private share ? Without even seeing the list of the other folders.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

if you have windows 2008 or higher you can enable Access-based Enumeration

so user will only see folder that he/she has access to.

A better solution to implement here would be home drive. Please see:
http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/320043

You can select the drive letter you want to user and it will create each folder for you with the right permissions.

For the path use something like this:
\\FILESERVER\USERS$\%username$

-FILESERVER: this is the smb server where the files are stored
-USERS$: This is the share for all the user folders. NOTICE the '$' this means it will be hidden when you browse to the server
-%username%: this is environmental variable for the username (you  don't have to type user1, user2, user3 ... user100)
