Hide Folders in RDS Farm

Remove the folders from "This PC" and Explorer windows.  I have done research and noticed it can be done with regediting but wanted to know if there has been a better solution to accomplish the task.  Like many other, we don't need users seeing all the folders in Windows Explorer.  Just here network shares really.  I would love to do this with a GPO if we can, its crazy to have to hack up the registry to hide them.  Attached is what I am talking about and would like to hide.  Any suggestions or ideas would be great thanks.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is no good way to do what you want.  The general consensus in many security circles is doing so is more "security theater" than an actual preventative measure.  Many apps still call the general windows file browser for activities and thus can be sidestepped rather trivially.  Properly setting permissions on files and folders eliminates that security issue and then it doesn't matter what they can or cannot see. As such, it hasn't been treated as any sort of priority within Microsoft for a GUI or GPO.
