we have (2) 2008 servers using DFS replication.  We recently took over this account and do not have experience with DFS.  

A server at location (B) had all the files on it encrypted by a virus.  It then began replicating to the server at location (A) which is the main Domain Controller (SBS 2008).  we stopped the DFS replication quickly so that the server in location (A) only had 50 files replicate to it.

we have snapshots of how the files looked prior to the virus.  

What i need to do is restore all the files in location (B) with the good files we have in location (A).  Office B is 2 hours away and they do not have a very fast internet connection.  Right now DFS is disabled

Is there any to copy the good files at site (A) to a usb drive and take them to Site (B) so that we can restore those files and then turn on DFS?  Or do we need to re-push all files from site (A) to site (B) using DFS?
