|When creating a share in Windows the "Everyone" group is always added and has "Full Control" access. This is stupid (should be only the Administror account with any access at the outset) but that's how MS decided to do things so that's what we all have to deal with.|
If you wish to limit access to a particular share you'll want to:
1) Add the Local Administrator/Domain Administrator account(s) to the share
2) Remove the Everyone group from the share
3) Add the Users/Groups you wish to have access to the share and assign the access you wish them to have.
In a workgroup environment you typically get asked for a password when connecting to a share. There is a way to stop that from happening.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
