Securing folders
have a folder on my pc that contains confidential information.

I am wondering if the best way for me to secure this information is
simply to create another user account for others to use. For example,
in the event that the pc needs to be repaired.

Would this be the best way to secure confidential information, or is
there a better method

Thanks
