Folder permissions on server 2003

I have a client who wants to password protect some folders on a 2003 SBS server so that only she can get to them and no one else. The only problem is there are several admin users and two domain admin users. How can I make it to where only she is the only one able to access these folders using a password. I thought about using a third party software but then she would have to remote into the server to unlock and lock the folder.

EFS can still ba accessed with the users log in and an admin can reset the password to gain access.
EFS is difficult to back up and can be even more difficult to restore.

To address earlier question: the deny permission is right next to the allow permission on the security properties for a resource.

You could use the deny permissions for that folder to the admins.
Admins and domain admin will be able to "take ownership" or change her password no matter what you do.

I don't think I have seen the deny permissions before. Where is that found?

How much data?  How big is the largest file?  How often accessed?  I am thinking her own encrypted thumb drive (2) or sky drive.

Needs to be on the server, I was thinking maybe a folder lock software

web-rocket,

i think what you are looking for can be accomplished using efs.  efs comes standard with server 2003 and it is certificate based encryption.
