Windows DFS: Creating a Distributed Windows File System
Windows DFS (Distributed File System) organizes Shares and files on a network, such that they appear to
be all in one directory tree on a single ix2, even if the Shares reside on many devices.
Windows DFS terms
There are several terms to understand with Windows DFS.
Namespace: A virtual Share containing other folders that are located on different devices
throughout a network.
DFS root: An object that consolidates all the folders in your network and makes them available
through a single entry point. An example of a DFS root is \\DeviceName\DFSRootName.
DFS link: A folder under the DFS root.

After entering a DFS root name, you add DFS links, which map to folders on other devices.
Click to add a DFS link target to begin adding DFS links.
