Hi I have a VPN link between my SBS 2011 and 2012 r2 servers and have setup a DFS folder replication to make a folder the same at each site.

The original folder is around 70Gb but the new folder I created seems to only have copied about 20Gb in over a week.

Is there any way to check the replication process to make sure its working correctly?

Thanks

what is the upload speed of the internet connection at the source?  Do the math and then use X percent of the result where X is an unknown number.   VPNs are a subset of the total, but afaik it is not known what portion.

You can use the health report to check on the state of the initial replication:

Administrative Tools > DFS Management > Replication > $Replication_group_name > Create Diagnostic Report > Health Report:

DFS Health report sample
You can also use dfssdiag ReplicationState /member:ServerName command to view the current state. The health report will give you some graphical data, the command line tool will give you the actual current state
