Is there any possibility to restrict some folders in document libraries for site collection adminstrators who are having full control permissions to the entire site collection in sharepoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everybody,

    I have document library with some folders to store some confidential stuff. I want to use some different permission levels for that document libraries to restrict users from the document library.I want to restrict site collection administrators(who have full control to the entire site collection) from that document library.

    Is there any way of implementing a password protected folder in SharePoint 2010?

    if there is a way to set password to particular folder/file so that
    administrator who has 'full control' permission is not able to access some
    confidential stuff.

    Please any one can help me on this.

    Thanks in advance.

  • You can so with IRM or maybe a third party utility, none that I am aware of.  The OOTB solution would be to create a new web application for and move those site collections to it.

    Hope This Helps!
