Backup a locked-down folder

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

just grant access to your manager and the backup-exec account only. (or use backup operators and put the account in that)

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.

Would have liked to see some information how to prevent access to data to the system administrator.
