    Hey all,
    This is sort of a noob question.
    In a corporate environment, I know that IT has access to all users' personal folders/emails,etc... Do managers have such a privilege?
    Thanks.

    I would think it depends on how the policies are written...

    Exactly. Not to mention there would most likely have to be a good reason for a manager to need to see something.

    Keep in mind that its not your personal computer, its a company asset. People always seem to forget that for some reason.

    Yeah. Simply put, I wouldn't want my overlords looking @ my histories, recent documents, and emails. Whether IT is interested is not a concern to me.

    If you just want to know if someone else besides you has access to your documents, simply open Security tab at file/folder Properties dialog box and look at access control list entries.
