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:

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

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;
