"I have several users that use a folder thats on the company shared directory, only they can access it and only they should have access.  We have a team of admins and they can naturally see the contents of this folder ( in AD environment).  How do i cutoff the admins (that includes me ) from access that folder ?  I want to be sure that if i remove administrators from the list that the users who need access will still have it and those that don't well will  not have access.  If something goes wrong i know we can always take possession but we don't need access to that folder."  This was a question that was asked Prior.

The new question is if we were to make a share point server and a user creates a document with very specific share permissions that doesn't included administrators, will the administrators still be able to view these documents without taking ownership of them ?  Example "stacey creates document and let john ,jessy and jessica have write right access to it, but no one else, will jim the admin be able to view hte document in sharepoint ?.

Hi vannyx,

In SharePoint 2007, you can set permissions of a Document Library for a user or a Group. So you can give the administrators the Reader permission and the others the Contributor permissions accordingly. Thus, though an administrator, he will have view & read-only rights and will not be able to edit the documents.

I thought I'd write this up for anyone who has a request to create an anonymous whistle-blower-type submission form created using SharePoint 2010 (this would probably work the same for 2013). It's not 100% fool-proof but it's as close as you can get…
