accessing windows files "locally" risk assessment

I am trying to do some risk assessment work on folder permissions on an admin share on a windows 2008 server. The share permissions are - admin share, but on the directory permissions builtin\users have access to some folders on the servers local C drive. As its an admin share, then remotely mapping the share and getting access to the files that way is out the equation. And the server is a secure room so them manually logging onto the server is very, very unlikely.

I appreciate you can RDP onto a server, but I think local security policy or user rights assignments determine which users and groups could do this.

So... if its an admin share, local security options/user rights assignments don't let basic users (builtin\users) RDP, and the server is physically secure - is there any other way a user can achieve "local" login to the server to access those files?

No, there isn't. All access you mentioned has ACLs set, so, no.
of course there's still the risk of exploits.
