Folder Redirection over VPN

I have a network with a server running server 2008 r2 and clients running Windows 7, the users have the desktop redirected to the server. There are several machines that are sometimes connected directly to the network but occasionally connect via VPN. I need a way of disabling folder redirection while they are connected via VPN but enabling it when connected directly. I have tried changing the group policy slow link detection speed but when connected via VPN this still applies.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Two thoughts.

Create a separate Active Directory Site for the VPN sub-nets and use site based policies to enable or disable folder re-direction.

Use off line folders. This needs some tweaking to kick in at the appropriate point. There are some clues here:-
