    How to limit my network shares to me only?

    So my kids are getting older, and i have a metric ton of important data i need to protect as much as possible. On the other side, i need the convenience of having it shared on the network.

    I use drives from all 3 of my pc's shared so i can access them from one another, and sometimes mount drives on my shieldtv units to game off of etc.

    I see you can limit the number of users but this doesnt really do me any good/have an application for my case. I also see the permissions which is obviously more what im after.

    I just dont know what group to set it to? Nobody needs to see anything on the network but me, however I dont think thats possible - especially when i often want to be able to access/connect from other non pc' devices.

    How would this work?

    I cant set Administrators group right? That would either apply to administrators on any device, or complicate things between my own devices.

    would i set it as the Authenticated Users group and that would ask for a username and pass to connect and then store a cert for future connections or something?

    You say your sharing drives do you mean drives or folders? You can connect to drives via admin shares. Ie c$ d$ you must provide admin username and password. How do the PC connect wireless or cable as some routers let you block seeing other PC but allow internet
