Does anyone know where to start with Folder Replication? I have two servers, and I need to replicate 120GB worth of Data from one to the other every so many hours.

A good place to start would be sufficient, thanks! :)

    For easy mirroring use a sheduled task, which is calling ROBOCOPY with mirror parameters.
    it's easier and reliabler then windows frs.

    but if you want the long, hard way, try to setup a DFS (Distributed File System)
    Its here: Start -> Progams -> Administrative Tools -> DFS
