If you are a domain admin, and the machine is part of the domain, then NO.
As a Domain Admin, you can grant yourself the necessary access to give
yourself ownership/permissions on ANY file or folder on ANY domain member
(though it may take some work and knowledge on your part to accomplish that,
but it CAN be done).
