You want to use %HOMEPATH%\Desktop as your source path. I believe that is correct for XP and up.

"Depending on Internet access/Permissions etc. have you considered using Dropbox? Cloud file storage that seamlessly integrates with Explorer/Finder and syncs files across all systems. Needs a small client install, but otherwise it's a great way to keep multiple systems up to date.

You can also install a portable version of the client called DropboxPortable onto a USB thumbstick and sync files across all accounts."
