Backup a locked-down folder

Medium Priority

Hi,

We would like to create a folder on our server that only the manager can access, so not even the administrator account.

My only worry is, when I remove all the folder permissions, will this folder be backed-up by backup exec?

Offcourse, i'm aware that the administrator can at any time grant himself access to any folder he needs. How do other companys make sure that that data is fully locked down?

Thanks

I lock down folders by assigning security to AD security groups.  So in your case I'd have a group (named after the folder) with the manager as a member.  That group and the System account would have access.
