Folder permission in sharepoint foundation 2010

If your site contains confidential data and you wants to restrict that data only for certain users and groups then this concept comes into the picture. For this, you need break permissions inheritance, and then edit permissions for the content on its own permissions page.
By default, all sub-sites, lists, and libraries within a site inherit permissions settings from whatever is directly above them in the site hierarchy. For example, a sub-site inherits permissions from the site above it. A list item inherits permissions from the list that it is in. A list inherits permissions from the site is on. In each of these cases, the content from which permissions are inherited is called the parent.
Here are the detailed steps:
1.     Open the list that you want to restrict access to.
2.     On the List Tools tab
3.     Click List to open the gallery of commands specific to the list.
4.     On the ribbon
5.     Click the List Permissions button.

The permissions page for the list opens, with a yellow status bar that explains that the list inherits permission from its parent site.
6.     Click the Stop Inheriting Permissions button.
Note: Now the list is disconnected from the parent site.

Two important things to note:
·         The list still has the same permission settings that it did before. But now, instead of inheriting permissions from the parent, it has its own copy of the parent’s permissions.
·         Changes that you make to the permissions settings for the parent site will not be inherited by this list.

Remove groups or users you don’t want
1.     In the Name section of the permissions page, select the checkboxes for the groups or users who should not have access to this list.
2.     Click Remove User Permissions.
The permissions page updates to show that the group or user no longer has permissions to the list.

Grant access to your Team members:
1. On the permissions page for the list, on the Edit tab, click the Grant Permissions button.
2. Type the name of the group or the individual you want to grant access to in the Users/Groups box.
3. Choose the level of permissions you want the group or individuals to have.
4. Click OK

That's it and You are done J J J
