This is my first post here so I will try to be as clear as possible with what I am doing.  I recently just picked up a small network job.  I am taking over this network as they are not able to get a hold of there old IT person any longer.

The network has about 9 work stations on windows 7 1 AD server 2008 R2, sonic wall on DSL.  Your basic setup I guess you could say.  Well today I did a quick audit on the network and saw that none of the users desktop, my docs are being backed up to the server.  I did notice that the users pictures and music are! This made me laugh but anyways.  The music and picture folders are being synced.  Now I have never used sync before but I tried to figure out how to setup there docs and desktop to sync but when I right click the folder and go to properties to figure out how to sync the folder there is not there.  The location tab is there but no sync folder to setup.  Im guessing the users do not have administrative rights.

I guess what my question would be, what is the most standard way to backup each users folders, desktop, my doc etc to the server.  I'm more familiar with SBS and its console so not having this is forcing me to learn how to use the Administrative Tools.  Any suggestions on this would be great!
