Copying Folders on Deduplicated Drives

Hi, I have a question. I have two Windows Server 2012 R2 Servers with Depduplication enabled on both volumes and it works great. I have on one server a folder with 400GB of data that needs copying to the other server. I usually use a piece of software called GoodSync to do this type of copying. But I've never done it with data on a deduplicated drive, so the question is if I copy the folder with the files that are 400GB in size to the other server, will it also copy the deduplicatioed files also? I have read on other forums people asking the same question but talking about the whole disk and not just one particular folder with files in. The volume itself is classed as an Atomic Unit but is the folder I want to copy in that bracket also and will I be k? Thanks

So if I copy this folder to the other server will I be copying all of the files and there won't be anything missing because it's was pointing to some depubed info on the other disk?
Nothing will be missing.
