block my music directory from backup and shadow copy on SBS 2003

Hello,  I am managing a network of 10 users.  They have SBS 2003 with their My Documents folders mapped to the server.   I am looking an easy way to block user's My Music directories from taking up space on the server.  Can this be excluded globally across all users?   Thanks.

                I assume that you are talking about ntbackup. You may handle it with a script file. Below is a starting point.

Hi,  I'll be a little more clear.   I some of the users are using are saving their huge music libraries to their My Music directories.   I don't mind that they save these big files to thier dastops -- I just dont want this stuff gumming up the server drives.   Is there a way to exclude the My Documents/My Music direcotires from automatically getting stored on the server?  

I know I could simply ask that they save their music files to their C drives -- but I'd like to avoid this route because most or the users wont understand how to do that without hand holding.

            *Maybe you would try scheduling a bach file which deletes all mp3 files in drive of server. Below describes how to delete csg files. Switch it as mp3. And files will be deleted in periods you scheduled.

No. Volume shadow copy is implemented on each drive (or volume of dynamic disks), you cannot exclude certail folders.

Try group policy User configuration > administrative templates > system > user profiles > Exclude directories in roaming profile enable that and try \My Documents\My Music
