  Folder Sharing with specific people? 
 Date Written

Can a folder be shared with specific people in networking in windows 7?

What are the steps to do so just after windows and drivers installation?

Is this Network in a domain or its just peer-peer?

If your system is attached with a domain then you would have to configure your network domain settings. But if you are using some shared network then you would have just to make folder shared.

It is on network sharing & not in domain.

Perhaps you could approach it sideways...?

Use encryption to limit access, and if necessary, use volume hiding (aka "plausible deniability") techniques if you need to keep others from even knowing a given volume/folder exists.

See freeware/donateware open source TrueCrypt for more information on ways to achieve what I believe would achieve the same end results.

Access authentication is flexible. For example, it can be a typical keyboard input password, a specific file that has to exist on the user's machine, or even (if my memory serves correctly) a specific USB memory stick.
