Is this on a network or a local user? If on a network create a share for the
folder you want to be the root. Don't give the user share permissions or
NTFS permissions for the share that is further up the tree than this. They
will be able to see the other shares but won't know their physical location
or be able to see the files. If it's a local machine change the tree
structure and use NTFS permissions.
