Disable storage of My Videos, My Pictures, etc on shared drive

We use a GPO to set a user's My Documents to point to a Dfs share. This is common practice. What we find however is that now and then a user will have videos on their desktops that go under My Documents. I realize a corporate policy is the best approach, but we'd like to also offer a technical solution so that these huge files don't get copied to our network storage.

Is there a way to exclude certain sub-directories in My Documents from being stored on the share?

No, because even IF there was a way to do that, then the work-around would just be to copy from MyDocuments to a different location on the computer, THEN to the share.

Good solution, although I haven't put it into practice yet.
