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
