h: \\server\users\
and profile path to \\server\users\profile

We noticed that users music files are being going to the server, that is, music folder are directed to \\server\users\profile

Hi. If this is a typical workstation/server setup, can't you just set the My Documents folder to go to the server instead of the whole profile? Is there more to your setup than I am understanding?  Just trying to help....

Create a grouppolicy to redirect My documents, Music, Pictures and Video's to the home-directory:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc732275.aspx

When these directories are redirected they are no longer in the roaming profile, and thus will not be copied to the central profile. This saves a lot of time during Logon and logoff.
You may want to configure additional directories to be excluded from roaming:

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

If you do not redirect them, and exclude them from roaming they will not end up on the server. See the second part of my previous answer;
