Hello All,  

I'm hosting an application with a 2008r2 RDS server.  The program allows users to export to excel files.  Since the server does not reside in their network I want them to save their work to their locally redirect drives.
\\tsclient\their choice or specifically

\\tsclient\c\export  folders for pc
\\tsclient\desktop\export  for macs.
   This works well but as we all know, users will find away to drop files anywhere they can, including the host machine.  

      I have greatly reduced the locations where users could possibly save these files.  This includes: Group policies to remove specific drives and  other restrictions, placing a deny write security setting to the users desktop as well as registry changes to manipulate Navigation bars but still there is one feature(Create New Folder),  I can not seem to remove or find reference to anyone needing to do this.  
If anyone has an idea how this can be accomplished I would greatly appreciate it.   Thanks
 I have identified it in the attached image.

The only way I know how to do this is to by file/folder permissions, by removing the right to create new folders but that would not be a global solution to all possible locations only to the folders and sub folder you designate. Additionally I would recommend this as a solution as there is too many chances to mess up existing or default (required) permissions--this can be done so if you want to give it a try let me know.

I have done that on the users desktop and that seems to work well.  The problem lies in an app that always point to the users document folder.   In theory that's what you'd want, but when your running a locked down box with a remote app it make it nuisance.  
I created short cuts that point back to their remote drives but still the users are creating folders and file where their restrictions allow.

I'm have reservations on restricting their document folder but I may give it a shot.  I'll let you know what happens
