You can create the folder you want to roam in the desktop, instead of My Documents. But the recommendation is to not roam a folder, but to store it in the home directory on the server. Therefore, the folder will not be copied on all computers where the user log on, but will be accessible in the home directory. If you need access to these files where not on the domain, use offline files:
