if data is within an "admin share", but the user has both power user and bypass traverse checking permissions, can they still access the data (i.e. a sub folder of the admin share) via map network drive from a remote PC?

Hi.

1st: Bypass traverse checking is on by Default
2ndly: power users don't exist any more on Servers newer than 2008, what is yours?
Then: the Folder can be shared for itself, yes and would be accessible. Also, thanks to Bypass traverse checking, users may directly Access some Folder although ist parent Folder is inaccessibel.

This has nothing to do with Group Membership on the Server but will only be controlled by the ACLs of the Folders.

No, they cannot Access it because at the topmost share Level, they are already denied Access. c$/d$/... are accessible to Administrators only.
