Yes, you correct an admin has nothing to do in people's private areas.
But in my company, users have access to very very private information about people.
We have to do check so this isnt abused. 
So in your company rules and people contract they sign that the know i can access everything, see everything and i check verything if i suspect wrong doings.. 

and in my case ( and maybe miro's also ) I do dictate wat can ben in there profiles or not,
but i just close my network and computers with lots of policies. 
my users can only write in there profiles folder but are unable to access it them selves, 
there "private" user folder (home), and the needed shares.
They are not allowed to even write on there desktop etc. 

So yes, i can understand miro's problem. He just didnt give the needed info, and that cost him time.
but he learned from it. 

So lets be happy for him its solved...  ( even its a commen setting in the policies. )
