I am new to DFS. We took over the IT work for a small company. They have 2 locations, each with a Windows 2008R2 server runnning the DFS role.
I installed a new 2012R2 Server at location 2 and setup the DFS Member. Then I added the replicated folders to the local server in c:\DFSData\
Everything seemed to be working fine, I was even able to watch the files starting to trasnfer.
But this morning I started getting phone calls about missing files.
It seems that some of the files from the source server are missing, mainly users profile data like My documents.
I was under the impression that when during the initial sync, the source files would remain untouched.
The files I am concerned about are located in d:\users and d:\profiles.
My main question is how can I tell if those files are gone or what happened to them.
