Want to set up second, remote exchange server. Can I copy the data stores seprately to avoid a long initial sync?

We're looking to set up a further exchange server at a remote location and use replication to mirror between them. Our existing information and public folder stores are pretty hefty in size though, so I want to avoid having to do a very long initial sync.

How can I do an offline copy of the files on to disc, and then use these as the initial stores at the remote location?

thanks in advance

You're going to confuse Exchange if you do that. Undoubtedly the best way to copy the data would be to install your new server at the same LAN as your existing server, prefereably so both servers are connected at the highest possible speed on your network (usually gigabit these days). Over a weekend or when the network is not busy, you can initiate the synchronization of your public folder data to the second server.

Once that's done remove the server and install at its remote location.
