    Controlling a Userís Personal Folder

    Hi All,
    Is there a way to control users personal folders (Doc1.pdf) by GP or other means?
    At the moment there doesn't seem to be any restrictions on what people can save in there etc.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Glennda - They are & I use resource manager to control files in their 'My Documents', but this doesn't work on anything outside that - Presumably its saved in there roaming profile - it's that what I want to manage.

    In my experience the most likely place they can then save items is either - email accounts (if its things like games). Or on the Desktop. You can easily deny access to the desktops though gpo's
