file backup secure folder

This is on a Windows Server 2008 and 2012.  I have a backup program that copies files and folders to the server to a folder.  What are the steps to create the folder on the server that only a certain user (and admin or domain controller) would be able to access  to retreive a file or folder  that was deleted or need to be recovered?    Basically I want this:  Username Bob to be able to copy files and folders into destination folder "Bob" on the server and only user  Bob (and admin)  can access it.   We have a VM setup as a file server.

Not understanding completely.  The folders have already been created on the server and everyone has access to them.  I want only the user associated with their folder to be able to access it.  Example:  username Bob can only get into Bob folder on server.  Username Sue can only get into Sue folder on server.  Which one of the above options would I use for that?

Then follow the second method I showed,
If the users you want to block currently DO have access to the folder. Just substitute each user for Bob

Also, I forgot to add, In step 9...
In the Permissions for... dialog, remove users / groups you don't want. If Domain Users or Interactive shows, remove them

Will the instructions in method 2 change if the user folders on the server are a subfolder of a folder called "Backup?"

It will affect sub folders of the folder applied to.
Please clarify how this sub folder relates

The backup destination for the client computer to the server is:  C:\Data\bup\user

Look at screenshot from the server

Sorry I'm so dense on this.  You mean the steps on method #2 have to be done on folders:  Data, bup, and user?
