Trying to setup permissions on smb share that uses 2 seperate user accounts.

I have a windows file share for my "Media" directory. Inside are these folders:

Backups
Personal
Books
Games
Movies
Music
Software
TV shows

Using the "PublicUser" local user account (no AD) I can connect to the share.

What I am trying to do is make it so all my computers can connect with the PublicUser (like they are now) but have it so it pops up with a credentials prompt when I try to access the Personal folder (and login using a different user account). I have personal file in the personal folder that I don't want others to see.

I have changed the permissions but it gives me an access denied message and does not give me a credentials prompt. I think this is because I am already connected as the PublicUser, which does not have access.

Let me know if you need more information and thanks for the help.
