JSI Tip 7611. The Windsows 2000 File Replication Service does NOT replicate .BAK files?

You may notice that .bak and .tmp files are missing from a replica.

This behavior is because by default, FRS does NOT replicate .bak or .tmp files.

If you want to replicate all files, set an explicit file and folder filter of comma (,) on the Replica Set.

NOTE: See How do I to use file and folder filters for content that is replicated by the File Replication Service (FRS)?
