We have a new Citrix Access Essentials server running on Win 2008.  When a Citrix user connects to the server and runs Word 2007, Excel 2007, etc., and selects OPEN a file they
see Computer and can access the Servers C:\ Drive.  How do I restrict them to a specific folder?  Example - C:\DATA\USERS\JackBlack
I don't want them to see anything but their folder via a Citrix connection.

Sadly no way to completely hide drives/folders the user has access to - there have been many creative ways admins have used to obscure by hiding drives/folders, but none of them have ever been 100% successful and keeping users out of Folders. The Good news is that with server 2008 your users should have only read access to the folders like C:\ C:\Program Files C:\Windows, etc - they should only be able to save in their profiles folder or any Network drive they have like a Terminal server homedir.

As much as you would love to just take away their access to Read - note that this will break their ability to logon - they need to see dlls and executable to create sessions, map printers, etc.

Best bet review the 2008 Terminal Server GPOs and go crazy locking down as much as you think your users will tolerate... This guide may help too... http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc264467.aspx
