Just set the appropriate permissions on the drive. Google "NTFS permissions" if you don't know how to do this.

As administrators they can undo anything you set.
You don't make people admins and expect to limit them.
simply put this isn't the way you do it

Well, in Windows Server there are administrators and there are administrators. You don't have to delegate all authority.

But I must admit that I read the question as restrict access to only those users rather than prevent access by those users.

Mind expounding on how you would make an administrator account which is a member of the administrators group yet deny them the ability to access anything on a hard drive they want access to?

Well, for starters, you could deny access to the drive to the Administrators group and grant it only to the Domain Administrator. Then you remove the "Take ownership of files and other objects" right from the Administrators group. And you would make the Domain Administrator the owner of the drive.

But that's an unlikely scenario. More likely, if you want people to have limited administrator privileges, you grant them just those priviliges - for example the ability to create users in an OU, but don't make them members of the Administrators group. There are a whole number of levels of "Administrator" in a Windows domain.

Most likely is that you have misunderstood what the OU wants to do. I suspect he means "restrict access to C: to those users" not "restrict those users' access to C:".
