One local synchronized folder for multiple users on one PC

Is there a way to have multiple computer accounts on the same computer use 1 single Sharefile Synchronization folder? 

For further context, I am the tech guy for a small accounting operation. 4 full-time users, up to 3 seasonal workers. 4 PCs. Due to how the office is structured and demands of work: each workstation location is more-or-less a "hot desk" with users jumping on and off as needed. 

Using the Sharefile Desktop / Drivemapper App,  we noticed that applications froze or would take a long time while attempting to open Book keeping / accounting application files direct from the cloud. 

I made the decision to use Sharefile Sync, to sync the shared group (~20GB) folder where all Application Data lives.. This has been working great so far, but for every new user account on the workstation then gets setup with a sharefile sync folder under their C:\<user2>\sharefile\ directory.. which then replicates the same 20GB  folder structure as in the C:\<user1>\sharefile folder. 

Has anyone dealt with this issue ?
