Hi Gurus,
I have DFS replication set up, but would like to know if there is a way where I can set it up so it replicates files to another folder without deleting them when these files are deleted on the primary.
Let say for instance:

If I put file BIMBO.txt on the primary folder (FOLDER A) and it gets replicated to the secondary folder (FOLDER B).
I want to be able to delete BIMBO.txt on (FOLDER A) after replication, and not having it being deleted on (FOLDER B)

Thanks

No, but you can try Robocopy which should be able to do that.
