Does anyway know how to restict certain folders from the Administrators while allowing a paticular Administrator to have access?

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
There are a number of HR folders that I do not want the Domain Administrators to access. However, I do want the HR department to access them (one of the HR users must be included in the Domain Administrators group). What is the best way to go about keeping all but one Admins out of a folder?

is you restrict access to domain admin and permet it to HR group this user will not be able to access it.
deny access overight the permit access

I would use deny very carefully...

Also, if you really want to keep the admins out make sure their permission to take ownership of the folder is removed.  Deny should be used for quick breaks in access to a file-system object.
