Homegroup question/issue

I run a small business out of my home, i have several employees and pcs/laptops we all share files etc and do work successfully thru homegroup. i realized however that i have HR sensitiv data(payroll etc) on my desktop which i want to be able to access on my laptop when i travel, but id rather my employees not access. Is there a way to limit access or make it so only certain people can look or even make it a one way mirror? if anyone can help i thank you
