I need to setup in group policy to have our users not servers or pc's, when they login to have their my documents sent to a server \\servername\users\%username% so we can back them up and we want to exclude .wav, .mp3 and any other audio files. how can i set this up in group policy?  what i was told was that we can use a WMI filter in group policy to do the filtering, this idea will not work with laptop outside users though how can i do this please someone with some expertise explain it

As previously stated (and you chose not to accept), You can redirect the users "My Documents" http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/w2k3/gp/group_policy_folder_redirect.htm

The group policy rediretc the  whole of My Documents - there is no filtering facility or any way to specify that certain file types are not copied to the server. - It is not possible !

There are two options as I see It
1. To allow users to copy all files to the server but exclude files from a backup see http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/ntbackup_options_exclude.mspx?mfr=true

2. Prevent the creation of mp3 files etc in on the share with a suitable AV utility like McAffee
