We have set Group Policy to redirect My Documents to our file server (2008).  This has been great, but we now face a major problem.  Many of our users have iTunes and therefore their music and movies end up on the server.  This is causing a space issue and we need to get those files off the server.  I know we can change the location through iTunes, but this will be terrible to do for a couple hundred users.  Is there a way we can use Group Policy to redirect the folder and then I can set the File Server Resource Management to block image/video files and others I do not want on the server.

I know how to setup the FSRM on the server to block that file from being stored on the server, but I need to move iTunes so they do not have issues when using their iPhones and other devices.

I would bet that your company policy does not support iTunes in the corporate environment.
