    Remove Access to "User Folder"

    im 99% done on our vista setup,

    but have just noticed that student will have access to save files to their "user folder". If they click on theier "My docs" and then go up one folder they get the vista "user folder" i think MS call it (as there is a GP to "remove link to User Folder from start menu" as below:



    I have played around with permissions and hunted for GP settings but no luck.

    This area is local and does not get synced backed up to the server, so if a student saves their work to this folder it will just sit there on the computer. Have I maybe enabled access to this area somehow?

    How have you guys allready deploying vista got around this one please? Or do i simply put a notice up letting students know that any files saved to this area will not be saved ?

    PS. Students do not have a network saved profile

    Cheers
