Full tree sync

I had a DFS replication set that has not been replicating for some time now.  I get the message in the event log to basicly restart DFS and a full tree sync will occur.  My questions is excatly what does this mean.  The two shares(links) involved in this replication set are way out of sync.  It is defined as fully meshed.  Will it keep the most current version of the files and directories when it does a full tree sync?  or will it pick one share(link) and replicated it to the other share(link) then the other way thus maybe deleting/dack dating files?

I would double check your definitions of the mesh.

If it measn that all files are synched basded on date, then you should be alright.

If you have a master - slave, then you can expect it to replicate that  way.

I hope this helps !
