Hi Justin,

I've gotten this to work, but only with very small replicated folders.
 I have the same issue as you with large replicated folders and have

Hi Judy,

Yes, I am aware of that, this is a brand new host and the start/stop
scripts were not installed on it (nor the registry hack).  If anyone has
backed up a 6.5.4 w/DFSR I would be interested to hear how it was done,
