How to verify DFSR replication

hi, we are relying on one-way DFSR replication between two WIndows 2008 R2 servers for DR purposes. We've setup one-way replication from server A to B and the data replicates fine.
We would like to know if there is a way we can objectively prove thatl all files on a volume in server A have replicated successfully to server B.
Would you be able to help?
thanks

Syncback? It has a test mode. Also I believe robocopy has a test mode as well.

Use a comparison program to compare the contents.  Depending on your link speed and the amount of data changing, the other side should be nearly identical and those files that aren't should be within moments (again, depending on link speed and frequency of data change).

Many copy programs have a comparison program built in. That's why I suggested robocopy and Syncback. Both free
