Sync data including folder permission over WAN link

Hi experts,

I have file server setup in office and I need to set it up one for DR site which has to replicate over WAN link.

- I understand that we can use DFS or Robocopy but what I understand is the way Robocopy work is it will copy the new file over old file which is not good for my case as my files are quite big.

- For DFS, I have some issue setting up DFS in my DC and I don't want to take risk of troubleshooting DFS issue as I have more then one AD sites which are not handled by me.

I found some products from internet which will sync to remote site only Incremented bytes of file changes but I'm facing with folder permission issue which is not synchronizing folder permission to remote location.


My question is could you please advise any tool that "sync to remote location only Incremented file bytes"  "including Folder permission as it is set in Source folder" so that I can use it to synchronize over the WAN link ?

Thanks in advance
BMT

What do you mean by new file cannot be copied over older. If the file has the same name isn't that your goal ?

Hi yo_bee,

I didn't say new file cannot be copied over older. What I mention is the way Robocopy work is if there is file version changed, it'll copy the newer file over the older file which will cause my remote site internet connection might Jam because of heavy file size transfer over WAN.

That is why I'm looking for something which only copy file changes bytes( Incremental ) over the WAN.
I already found one but it doesn't copy folder permission.

Appreciate if you can suggest me one which sync only incemental as well as folder security permission

You need something like DFS replication or if you have a SAN it should have a utility that does the replication.

Which SAN that has utility to replicate over WAN link ?

yo_beeDirector of ITCommented:
I am not a SAN expert, but you would most likely need that SAN to do this. I do not know if you can just get a utility from a SAN (ie EMC or NETAPP) and run it against a standard Windows Server.
Someone else migth be able to answer this for you, but not me.

Can we manage in DFS to let it Direct user to only the particular server I want them to access ?
So that I can make sure users are always accessing latest version of data ?
Can anyone give me right answer please ?

Thanks
