Padlock on a folder

i had shared a folder (docs 4), but now i want to change this to unshared, but want to share a folder that was inside this folder,.

but now when i try to unshare the first folder, it has a padlock on it (i can still open it) how can i get this back to a normal unshared folder, then make the folder inside shared?
