When running Symantec Workspace Virtualization in Windows 7, an automatic global exclude for the My Documents folder, the option for which is by default enabled during the installation of SWV, will only exclude the user's documents.  Due to changes made regarding My Documents in Windows 7, [PERSONAL] resolves to C:\users\user\documents, but the Documents Library now supports multiple directories.  Additionally, C:\users\public\documents can be selected to store additional documents.  These would be captured in the layer without the proper excludes.
