I am currently using a GPO Policy to redirecting the Application Data, Desktop, My Documents, and Start Menu folders for a security group called Staff to my server.  Staff consists of 14 users 11 at the same location the server is and the 2 at my west office location and one at my derby office location which are connected via a 768k fractional T1.
What I would like to do is have the 11 Local Users have just there My Documents and Desktop folders redirected to the server and the 3 users and the other 2 offices just have their My Documents redirected.  Do I create 2 different policys and delete the old one or do I modify the current policy I already have? What is the best way to accomplish this?

Uncontrolled local administrators groups within any organization pose a huge security risk. Because these groups are locally managed it becomes difficult to audit and maintain them.
High user turnover can cause old/redundant user data to consume valuable space. UserResourceCleanup was developed to address this by automatically deleting user folders when the user account is deleted.
