The issue you are facing:
I have folder A that contains folders B and C. And I have a group ‘General’ that contains all users, and a group ‘special’ that contains selected users.

I shared Folder A with the general group, but now would like to restrict access to folder C, which is a child of folder A, to the special group only. Is there anyway one can do this?

No. There is a strict inheritance concept used inside the share. At max you could restrict access to each folders via file access control app but the folder will be seen … Recommend to rethink your sharing concept into the flat sharing idea which is used here …
