Disabling folder redirect on terminal server

I have a windows network (active directory) with two offices.  In one office there is a small business server (03 sp2) and a termainl server (2003 R2 sp2) and in the other there is one domain controller (server 03 R2)

The users at the office witht he doman controller have their folders redirected to local server there.  The problem becomes when they connect to the TS server over the VPN the TS wants to redirect all of their folders as well and the bandwidth goes through the roof.  How can I make it so that no one gets their folder redirected when they connect to the terminal server?

Thanks for your reply, unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the problem.  I want the folder redirect to not function on the terminal server.  I see where I can disable offline folders, but the redirect still operates.  Help?

Check your following group policy settings: User configuration -> windows settings -> folder redirection. Ensure that those redirections are configured properly. Test the configuration afterwards by using the "group policy results"  functionality (found in the group policy management program) on a test user.
