DFSR file replication 2008 to 2019

Last Modified: 2020-01-31
I have set up DFSR between windows 2008 and windows 2019, the 2008 server is in production and the file share that I want to replicate is critical.

I have set up two test folders.  If I put a file in the 2008 server folder it replicates fine.  

If I delete the files on 2019 it deletes them in 2008.  That's the problem, I can't take the chance that those files will be deleted, also I dont want to change the permissions on the folder level because I don't know how it will effect the produstion environment.
