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:

Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.

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;
