    In Windows 7 to restrict access to a drive I would:

    Right click on the drive
    Properties
    Sharing
    Advanced Sharing
    Permissions
    Add
    Advanced
    Find Now
    Double click on user I want to restrict access to
    OK
    Click their name and deny all
    Ok
    Ok
    Apply
    Close

    And its done.

    I do this in Windows 8 however and that user can still access that drive.
    Any ideas on what I can do?

    OK done it, needed to go to the Security tab rather than the Sharing tab

    The Sharing tab is for Network accessible drives and NOT local drives!
