Is there a way to make everything that a user create from his computer can be made to save on our server?

I have about 6 stand-alone machines on a workgroup network.  I would like to be able to set them up to automatically save their work on  user-name folder on our server.  Is there a way to do that?

I would have them save everything in a My Documents folder with their user name and redirect it using group policy. You can sell it as the server is backed up and they could lose everything when the computer crashes.

If you are not using Group Policy, you can simply create a desktop shortcut on each computer and still direct the users to save everything in that folder.

Basically you can redirect everything to a file server and use it together with roaming profile. Other Tools like AppSense, RMS and Microsoft UE-V, can save all user experience data to a centralised database.

you need be careful with the legacy application some of them required additional configuration to work in this scenario.
