File Replication

Last Modified: 2010-04-20
I have a customer who has a Windows 2003 SBS network with about 8 users. The person who originally set up this network oversold them on a lot of hardware, and to make a long story short he has 2 servers with identical hardware configurations. Since he only needs 1 for his office he would like to set the other up in his home and replicate the information from the office to home, essentially giving him an off site backup. Using just DSL or Cable lines, what would be the best solution? I've read a little bit about File Replication Service and Distributed File Systems, but this sounds like it would be overwhelming for the bandwidth DSL or cable can provide. Any suggestions would be most helpful.
