HI Experts,

I have very funny requirnment. How Do I protect my data from Loacl Administrator?

I have 5 systems with windows 2000 -- without AD -- running thru local admin

I'd created one local users on all the systems -- and encrypted the my data but If administrator will change the local user password -- he can access the my data

Is there any way to protect my data from Administrator?

Hi arvind,

No, you can't, that's what the administrator account is for.
You will have to look at things like password protected folders using thirth partie tools (winzip can do this)

Greetings,

Can't be done :(
It's pretty easy to take ownership and set the permissions, that's the whole idea of an administrator.
Maybe it's better for you to just save your important documents on another device like a USB stick and take that home with you.

Nope, you should really see the Administrator as "God" he can access whatever he likes. The only workaround for this will be to use removable devices, or a password protected Zip file as I said above (you allready explained why the Zip was not an option for you, so you'll have to live with the removable devices)
