I d like to exclude certain  folders from the roaming profiles of the users. Namely the Desktop folder, and the My Documents folder.   I tried to to do this by  going to the GPs at  User configuration > Administrative templates > System > User Profiles > Exclude directories in roaming profile. In there it prompts me to enter the name of the folders that I want to exclude. No problems with the Desktop folder. However, the My Documents folder name is unique for ever user. E.g user Jbloggs s My Documentsfolder is called Jbloggss Documents. How can I define the My Documents folder so that it applies to all users??
Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help!!
