I have a network folder & there is a folder called "testtest" with the files changer.cfg & folder.cfg in it. I can delete this folder & its contents & it will re-appear later in the day. I think the tech who worked here prior to me was playing around with DFS.....how can I determine if DFS is setup to replicate this folder or what is making it appear on its own after I delete it?

Sounds like a Backup-to-Disk folder for Symantec Backup Exec. Do you use that product?

Open your Backup Exec console and go to devices. See if you don't have a device listed which is creating that folder.

If you have no devices I cannot imagine how you are backing anything up. Perhaps this folder is not related to Backup Exec then. However, I can tell you that when Symantec Backup Exec creates a new Backup to Disk folder those two files are created automatically.
