    Files & Directories: C:\%AppData%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads\*.jpg

    Remove "C:\" from the start of that. %APPDATA% starts with the system drive letter.

    Is there a way to scan under appdata, but only for the current logged in user?

    Yes. On your Scan Profile, set Scan As to "Logged on User". For your Include Pattern, use:

    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads

    On top of that I don't see a point in trying to copy the images out to every admin, default what ever folder, when its only needed for specific users.

    I recommend giving Default a second chance. If you copy the images to the Default user profile (C:\Users\Default), any new users will get them automatically. That way you would only have to deploy to each computer once.

    I tried with scan as logged on user, but then it doesn't return anything. 
    My scan profile looks like this:
    Scan As: Logged on user
    Files & Directories: C:\%AppData%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads\*.jpg

    I'm testing on my on computer, where I have jpg files in both my own Background folder, but also the local administrators Background folder.

    It doesn't change anything if I use %userprofile%\Appdata\ instead of %appdata%

    Oh, stupid me. I tried with \%appdata%, but PDQ didn't allow it without a drive letter. I didn't think of trying without the first \.
