Goldmine 5.5 How do you exclude fields in the "Create duplicate record" feature

In Goldmine 5.5, the "Create duplicate record" checkbox is found under File > New Record.

When you use the feature, it copies fields to a new copy of the record.

It's great but in my case, its copying a fields from the original record that I've disabled to all users. The fields I'm speaking about are only for Administrators to add or edit.

The Create duplicate record copies these fields to the new record, although the data almost never is the same for the new contact. And the users cannot change the data after the copy is made because the fields are protected.

Is there a way to exclude fields in the "Create duplicate record" feature?

There is no way to exclude fields.

But why are you using the duplicate record feature if as you say "the data almost never is the same for the new contact."    The results should be the same if you just create the new record normally.
