Lotus Notes Directory Catalogs get corrupt

I notice that on regular basis the local replication of the Directory Catalog becomes corrupt on users pc's.  All our users are affected.  The only thing to do is to delete (in Windows Explorer) the catalog files and then to re-create the replication.

Any ideas?

Recreate the MDC on your server too.
It's possible there actually is a corruption there.  If you want this to replace your previous MDC, you could copy the Replica ID using a tool by the name of .... (can't remember :-) )  Else, all your users will receive a new catalog ....

What version of notes are you running ? Are there any errors in log.nsf

If possible upgrade to newer version..that might fix !

If it affects all your users, I would also vote that the server has some corrupt data, though it isn't showing at the source.  I would create a new NON-REPLICA to be on the safe side.

We are running Notes 5.x.  Upgrading to 6 didn't help.  

Let me try creating a new directory.
