windows 7 Profile

we have setp the hom drive
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
is there any way we can prevent this?

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:

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:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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;
