I believe you can set this on the server through Terminal Connection
manager.  I also believe there are GPO settings you can use to affect

Subject: RDP Client for Windows

We are currently requiring the use of Remote Desktop Connections for
numerous users to access their office computers from home.  The
connections are running through a secure VPN tunnel and are working as
designed, with one exception.  We do not want users accessing there home
hard drives through this method.  With the RDP client by default the
sharing of the home drives is unchecked, but is very easy to enable it
and then users can transfer internal documents onto a home computer or
allow Viruses from the home computer onto the Corporate Network.

Any thoughts on how to rectify this?

Group Policy is definately out of the question, we cannot push group
policy to the users home PC's.
