I am having a issue with DFS on server 2012 Datacenter.  We have 2 DC's that have DFS enabled the replication works both ways so if one server is down the changes made to our shares sync back when the other DC comes back up.  The issue we are having is with access databases users connect to both DC's at the same time and work on a shared access database at the same time.  DFS is deleting info from the databases which i need to stop I can not just move the databases to a standard share they need to stay in the present location which is on a share.   The shares are User data, Public Data, and Data Transfer all are on DFS the folder I need to remove is deep in the Public Data folder.  I can not see a way to exclude that folder from DFS or have just a one way sync on that specific folder all changes seem like they need to be done a the top level root and affect all the files and folders under the root.  Any Ideas of how i can disable DFS for specific folders or have the sync be one way on specific folders?
