    >>Right-click the file or folder, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.
    >>Click Advanced, and then use one of the following steps:

    >To view or change special permissions for an existing group or user, click the name of the group or user, and then click Edit.
    >To remove an existing group or user and the special permissions, click the name of the group or user, and then click Remove.
    >>In the Permissions box, click to select or click to clear the appropriate Allow or Deny check box.
    >In the Apply onto box, click the folders or subfolders where you want these permissions applied.
    >To configure security so that the subfolders and files do not inherit these permissions, click to clear the Apply these permissions to objects and/or containers within this container only check box.
    >Click OK two times, and then click OK in the Advanced Security Settings for FolderName box, where FolderName is the folder name.

    Thank you.
