password protected shares is the default but clients can save their credentials for access the next time.

you must have only everyone in the ntfs file permissions for that share or using the same username/password
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Hi,
you need to look at at individual shares one by one on that page. Here i can help you with. Just try it on one of the folder and see the results.
1. Login to server

2. Check 'Share permissions' for a folder. This you can find under 'Sharing' tab when you look at a folder's properties window. You need to give Full permission to everyone.

3. Now, check NTFS permission of each folder. This you will see under 'Security' tab. Here you have to allow those uses who need access to this share. remove otheres. Remove everyone if you dont want everyone to have access to this folder.

Remember, there are two types of permissions you are playing with; Share permission and NTFS permissions. It is always confusing to find out which permission will be the final(affective) permission. The thumb rule is

"Most restrictive permission will be the affective permission"

For example. if you give full "Share" permissions to a user "A" but only Read permissions on NTFS (security tab), then user will have the most restictive permission which is "read" in this case.
