Restrict access to LAN share if connected via RDP over a VPN

Last Modified: 2015-04-02
Daft question of the day but here goes:

We have a network share in our AD domain containing confidential data that should not be accessed outside of our office.

We have a couple of users who need access to that share as part of their role but who also need to connect remotely to their Windows 7 PC using our Windows 2008 R2 Remote Access Server by VPN and Remote Desktop Connection.

We want to prevent them accessing the confidential data share if they are connected over the VPN. Is there a way of doing that?
