They are able to browse to any user folder, thats what i dont want, i found a solution by adding a DWORD key into regedit, but i am sure that this is not the best way of doing this.

I already enabled some GPO's, preventing this but looks like they are not working.

I would deny access (permissions) to (at) network resources for remote desktop users except to the ones they need. I guess they also need some network resources, so putting TS in separate network is not an option.
