URGENT! Redirect c:\ to client device mydocs folder?

I have a Citrix Pres. 4. server and need to redirect the server session c:\ to the client device's mydocs folder.

I created a Group Policy and performed folder redirection of the mydocs folder to the c:\ (server drives are remapped to m:, so c:\ is the client device) but it is not mapping to the client device.

Any advise on how to redirect the server session to the client drive?  I assume I am missing a variable like %systemroot% but for the ICA client, but I can't seem to find one...

Thanks!

The C: drive will actually show up as C$: as a shared drive so you can try \\client\c$ or just c$

"client" is a variable for the client computer

Also verify that you are able to connect to this drive from citrix.  You will need local drive mapping enabled of course.

This is very close, but is there a variable I can use to point at the clients my document's directory?  I tried %homepath% but it didn't point correctly (got to the documents & settings, but then in incorrectly pointed at a subdirectory called 'documents')

Thanks!

Does this work?  

 "\\client\c$\Documents and Settings\%username%"

If %homepath% worked except it tripped up on the spaces in the directory name, try enclosing the whole path in double quotes.

Blipman- your solution is correct, but it didn't work.

The problem now is, this points to the username supplied to the citrix server, not the client's my docs directory.  (different usernames, users at home often have logon names such as 'dad' or 'administrator', not the actual user account name on the server).

I am awarding you the points, as your answer is correct, and works as you state.
However, if you know of a way to redirect to the client device my docs folder (in whatever path that may be), I would be very appreciative!

This can probably be done how you want with more scripting.  I guess you need a variable to call that will query the currently logged on user from the pc.  That is over my head but I think WMI will get you the info.
