    Hello!

    My worry is how personal your documents become when you have made a folder personal and there are other people with administrator accounts?

    Does anyone have a clear answer on this?

    Thx

    If there are other admin accounts then they can read the folder since they have the ability to take ownership and even if it is encrypted they can run the certificate recoveyr agent and decrypt it...most computers need only 1 admin :)

    Ok, maybe there's only one needed, but still, there are two... Else the secund user of the pc was sometimes too limited in action...

    So the only way to access personal folders is taking ownership? Can you give the ownership back afterwoods?

    Yeah they can set the settings, or they could just change the security settings afterwards so that both users have full read wirte access to the folder and unless the personal likes to check all their private folder info they'd never notice
