I have created a sharepoint library on 2010 and only want particular users to access that folder.

I select the library click the library tab and click Library Permissions. Click the "Stop Inheriting Permission". Afterwards, I remove the group. However, I find that it always remove the whole user group from the SharePoint site, rather than that particular document.

I also try another tab "Library Settings" -> Permissions for this document library. Again, I get the same result.

Any idea ??

You should be seeing the option "Remove User Permissions" in the library permissions after you no longer inherit permissions.

When you click it, you should see a dialog for confirmation that names your library specifically (mine is called Documents);
Remove Group in Permissions
This wont get rid of the group.

Under a particular library to remove a group, is there any indication to show where you are ? On my screen, it seems that it go to the home site to remove the group. that why the removed group can't acess the portal.

It doesn't state the library name but it does have a yellow message stating that 'This library has unique permissions'
