I was just contacted by a user on my network that they had stumbled upon an HR folder with confidential information while searching for a file in the Recent Places folder.  How do I restrict the "Recent Places" folder access to only show a user's individual activity?

Yes, I had the HR Manager secure the folder immediately - but just as a general courtesy to other users who might have private files saved in their profiles that they might not want others to read I'd like to make the Recent Places folder unique to the user.

It's a terminal server, each user has a unique login/profile.  I'll disable the Recent Places feature if there isn't away to "firewall" it.
