Amending the GPO to add more drive options - no system.adm under ADM folder in GPO

Hi there,
Running server 2008 R2 Domain, windows 8.1 clients.  On my remote desktop server I have applied a GPO and would like to make some changes to the system.adm file to add more 'Hide drive' options.  I am following this article:
https://support.microsoft.com/kb/231289
I can find my GPO Unique # from \\server\sysvol\policies\{kajd lfjsf9wr080808980} (example) and there is an ADM folder but this folder is empty.  
Question:  How can I have my existing applied GPO to have system.adm file under ADM folder so that I can add some more drives to HIDE.  Need help

The article you reference shows the system.adm file to be modified is The default location of the System.adm file for a default domain policy is:
%SystemRoot%\Sysvol\Sysvol\YourDomainName\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\Adm\System.adm

Greg Hejl,
Thanks for reply.  In my case since its a Remote desktop server, I have a new GPO connected to the OU in which the VM resides.  I need to make changes to that GPO.  It has ADM folder but no system.adm

Greg,
I am sure the loop back processing would work well if my changes to include more drives to the default policy work first.  So I went to the default policy after following the changes as per the article, went into default domain policy,  the drop down menu to see if it has added my drives to 'Hide drives' portion.  The result was nothing was added.  For some reason there is an additional step which I am missing somewhere.  Need help.

Hi Greg,
Thanks for the reply.  If adm or even admx files are un-editable.  What else I can use to have some more drives added to 'Hide specific drives' option in GPO?  Need help
