The option to set folder redirection is under User Configuration\Windows Settings\Folder Redirection.

I'm not aware of a way to exclude file types via group policy.

You can't filter my documents in group policy - its all or nothing
If you have a suitable anti-virus program like McAfee you could stop users saving .mp3 files but other than that ???

You might find some quota mangement software capable of filtering files types - but that'll cost you.
