Below are two tables. This first one lists ACLs that can be set for folders; the second details Special Permissions that correspond to the settings.

NTFS Folder Permissions
Read User can read files and subfolders in the folder and view folder ownership, permissions, and attributes.
Write User can create new files and subfolders within the folder, change folder attributes, and view folder ownership and permissions.
List Folder Contents User can list the names of files and subfolders in the folder.
Read & Execute User can negotiate files and folders, even if they don't have permission to read the contents within those specific folders. He or she can also perform actions permitted by the Read permission and the List Folder Contents permission.
