the admin user can set access/deny privileges on disk access and usage. make sure you retain all privileges as you restrict them for others. otherwise you will lock yourself out of your hdd.
another way could be encryption - by using bitlocker or truecrypt. however, sometimes encrypted drives appear as unformatted drives, if one formats the drive, all data on that drive will be lost.
Each users space should be protected right? Just leave files in your "my documents" area.
I think he'll be able to browse to that area, but he won't be able to open any of the files. He might be able to see file names however so if you have "hisgfboobs.jpg" don't be surprised if he's upset....
