Synology permissions

I am having some problems with Mac users accessing folders on my Synology.  I can set permissions to prevent users from accessing a particular folder but the problem is that I want to prevent the users from seeing other folders on that share. Currently, the users cannot access the restricted folders but can see them.  I do not want the users to even see the folders they do not have permissions to access.

Update.  It looks like all of the permission control is in the root shared folder.  Once you give permission for a user to read or read/write you cannot prevent them from 'seeing' all of the folders but can limit access whether they can view what is in those folders??  The client does not want the users to even see any folders or files other that what they need. Am I making sense?

When one creates a share on Synology, one creates the share permissions and file/folder permissions within the share.

To alter the file permissions within the share, use the "File Station" to browse to the file/folder within the share and change permissions as required.
