Can you redirect ProgramData folder using Group Policies

Can you redirect ProgramData folder on a WIndows Vista / 7 machine using Group Policies from a Windows 2008 Server as my users are saving data locally on thier machine that I would like to keep on a centreal server?

If so, how - can it be done on a computer basis or a user basis?
