That folder will be "expanded" to the folder e.g. "C:users<username>Saved Games<gamename>".

Create a folder named _SAVEGAMES_ on the server and all data in that folder will be synced in the appopriate folder on the local computer.
* Added new special folders "_USERPROFILE_"
That folder will be "expanded" to the folder e.g. "C:users<username><gamename>".

Create a folder named "_DOCUMENTS_" on the server and all data in that folder will be synced in the appopriate folder on the local computer.
