    Set up private folders with multiple administrators


    Hello. I re-installed our home computer cause it was freezing up a lot. Everyone has an admin user profile.

    I was wondering if there is some way to prevent other administrator users AND (this is important) Newly created admin users from accessing my c/users/name folder.

    You cannot restrict an admin account. All admin accounts are equal and have the exact same rights you do. This is by design.

    If a user cannot be trusted with this kind of power they should not have an admin account.

    If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate (not home editions) you could use NTFS encryption. This is not completely secure when there are other admin accounts.
