  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    As far as I know, to use DFS Replication, you must create replication groups and add replicated folders to the groups. Replication groups, replicated folders, and members are illustrated in the following figure. As the data changes in each replicated folder, the changes are replicated across connections between the members of the replication group. For you replicated folder, if you don't add to the replication group, it won't change.

    The articles show the details about  progress about DFS replication, you may take a look.


    In addition, for DFS deployment in server 2008, you may refer to the following articles.
