I wouldn't recommend roaming profile with large mailboxes like that. Here's a video on folder redirection.

For mailboxes like this all you need to do is modify the default OST path so that it is outside of the users profile. You can create a folder on the C drive called "OST" (or something like that). You can then change the default OST creation to point to this new directory and you will not be affected. You could also set your users to Outlook Online Mode, which wont create an OST file.

Instead of folder redirection or roaming profile I think you would be better of with Home drives

U can setup persistent home drives and also can keep user PST to home drive
