[Samba] subfolder sharing with "valid users"

Thanks for your answer.
I actually tried creating a different share per subfolder but I couldn't override the "security = share in [global]" setting in individual share with "security = user" or vice versa.
If I had "security = share in [global]", then I couldn't enable login prompt for any of the individual share and that's what I need.
I'd appreciate your help!
