    If your running CDR on a folder and someone changes the folder permissions will it replicated the whole folder?

     Worried about it trying to send 200GB of data for a something like a permission change.

    Hello ipman,


    Yes - any permission changes will be replicated to keep the source/destination in sync.

    If you don't want to replicate the permissions you can use this regkey(WINDOWS ONLY).


    Reg Value or Subkey


    Reg Type


    Reg Key

    <Instance Root>\File Replication 


    Optionally disable the replication of the security stream of files. This stream includes user and group access control list (ACL) settings for file access. If this registry key is not present, behavior is the same as if it were set to 0; ACLs will be replicated.

    Reg Data

    0=ACLs will be replicated; 1=ACLs will not be replicated



    Here is an example:

    When it replicates the permission change does it consider that a whole new file?


    So I have folder thats 200gb and I change permissions on that folder and its subfolder/files.

    Will it try to send 200gb or will it just update the permissions?

    A permission change on the folder will not require all the data be replicated again.

    ACL/Permissions are treated as a seperate entity.
