John's right. Cause an administrator can always gain the necessary rights to "open" your folder.

The normal approach would be using personal folders, where only the user and the backup administrator has access. Then you would enable monitoring (auditing) on this folder for permission changes to catch when some tries to gain additional permissions.
William Fulks

Even if you set permissions to just your account, someone with admin rights could still take control of it. Bottom line is there is no good way hide stuff on a server when others have admin rights. You'd be better off going with a secured flash drive or something like that.
William Miller

You could password lock the folder behind a secured zip file if you really need it to remain on the server. That way it can't be opened except by the person with the password. Still, that's a hassle.

I'm not sure how much this will help you, though.
