Is there any way to change the replication of files on HDFS after they are already written to HDFS?

Yes, the following are ways to change the replication of files on HDFS:

We can change the dfs.replication value to a particular number in the $HADOOP_HOME/conf/hadoop-site.xml file, which will start replicating to the factor of that number for any new content that comes in.

If you want to change the replication factor for a particular file or directory, use:

$HADOOP_HOME/bin/Hadoop dfs –setrep –w4 /path of the file

Example: $HADOOP_HOME/bin/Hadoop dfs –setrep –w4 /user/temp/test.csv
