Folder Replication

Hi I have go two sites one running an SBS2011 server and a remote site running a 2012r2 member server.

The two sites are linked via a VPN but it is very slow opening some files at the remote site for data held on the SBS2011 server.

Is there a way I can set a data folder to replicate so the user can access the version held on the server they are local to?

Then maybe each evening the two folders can sync and data added etc during the day?

Thanks

You can configure DFS and let the users access locally.

That's great thanks ive not heard of DFS before.

I have gone through and set it up and have created a test folder on each server and the data is replicated which is great.

If im at the second site and I launch \\"domain-name"\data and I try and open a 4mb image it takes 35-40 seconds but if I just open up \\localserver\data and open the same file it takes 2 seconds.

It seems that its not opening the local version of the file but the one on the SBS server still.

If there a way to make it pick the local server?

Thanks

Hi very sorry about the delay have been doing some testing and waiting for feedback from some users.

We have got a 70Gb folder on the main server that we want to replicate, I create this at the weekend and have checked this morning and around 3Gb has replicated.

I would have thought more would have completed by now, is there a way to check the status of the replication?

I also noticed that the staging quota is 4Gb does this need to be increased to show the size of the main folder?

Thanks
