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?

Steps:

1. Delete the existing GPO

2. create OU and place 11 Local Users into this container - create a GPO for this OU and configure it for My Documents and Desktop folders redirection.

3. create a second OU and place  3 users and the other 2 offices - create a GPO for this OU and configure it for My Documents folder redirection.
