I am in the process of adding folder redirection to a small network that has been using Roaming profiles for some time.  The reason to add Folder Redirection is to speed up logon times  and log off times.  There is only one server on the network and it is running Server 2008 R2.  DFS is installed and DFSN has been configured.  At this point in time, DFSR is not configured because there is no other server to replicate to.

The work stations are all running Windows 10 PRO update 1709.

Is there any way that DFSR could be configured to replicate back to each work station?  Is there any way to update Windows Server 2008 R2 to have a similar feature to Server 2012 R2?  The only reason to have the files available to the workstation would be in the case of losing the file server
