In the replication import directory, if you use the MS-DOS Directory (DIR) command or view the directory with File Manager, you may see a file in the directory that has a recent time stamp and a file size of zero bytes. On the export server, this file will have a different time stamp and file size.

This occurs because during the replication of a file, the import server resets the file length to zero, and the time stamp changes at that time. When the replication is completed, the time stamp and file size information are reset to the properties of the original file on the export server.
