I have a windows 2012 R2 virtual machine as a Domain controller.
On this DC I have installed windows server essential 
Have redirected users's desktop & mydocuments (folder redirection) to shared folders on this DC only.
Have others shared folders too with different security permissions on the same DC.

Now I have setup an additional domain  controller for fault tolerance/ replication.
How to replicate these redirected & shared folders to additional DC? I have a NAS too, may use that too if you suggest. (
I guess, I should setup Distributed File System (DFS) Replication.
But how to migrate all these redirected folders without disturbing users to DFS?
