    Robocopy Wildcard for Directory paths??

    I am trying to use RoboCopy to copy to a path like:

    C:\Documents and Settings\*User*\Application Data

    Where *User* would be a variable (the user logging on)

    Is there a "Widcard" for this in Robocopy, or can anyone think of a way to get the information into my target path?

    Another utility?

    Thanks in advance,
