Setup DFS on One Server with Multiple Shares
I have one Windows server that has one Share(company) and one folder (Department) under the Share, and over Hundred of subfolders under the "Department" folder.
The subfolders are getting larger and larger in size
If I make any changes on the Permissions at the "Department" folder, then it will take long hours for the Permissions to flow down.
I would like to know if :
I create several Shares(Company1,Company2,etc..) instead of one share that I have now (Company)
Then create several "Department" folders (Department1,Department2,etc...) under each share
Then move a bunch of subfolders under each "Department"
Well, there will be several Shares, this is why I am thinking if DFS will simplify the Mapping of those Shares to Mount Point instead of Drive letters.
I am not worried about Replication as we have Snapshots(Shadow copies)
