If you read the whole error you get this:

....because of one of the following reasons.

[1] Volume "\\.\C:" has been formatted.
[2] The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been deleted.
[3] The NTFS USN journal on volume "\\.\C:" has been truncated. Chkdsk can
truncate the journal if it finds corrupt entries at the end of the journal.
[4] File Replication Service was not running on this computer for a long
[5] File Replication Service could not keep up with the rate of Disk IO
activity on "\\.\C:".
Setting the "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" registry parameter to 1
will cause the following recovery steps to be taken to automatically recover
from this error state.
[1] At the first poll, which will occur in 5 minutes, this computer will be
deleted from the replica set. If you do not want to wait 5 minutes, then run
"net stop ntfrs" followed by "net start ntfrs" to restart the File
Replication Service.
[2] At the poll following the deletion this computer will be re-added to
the replica set. The re-addition will trigger a full tree sync for the
replica set.

WARNING: During the recovery process data in the replica tree may be
unavailable. You should reset the registry parameter described above to 0 to
prevent automatic recovery from making the data unexpectedly unavailable if
this error condition occurs again.

To change this registry parameter, run regedit.

Click on Start, Run and type regedit.

Click down the key path:
"System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameter s"
Double click on the value name
"Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore"
and update the value.

If the value name is not present you may add it with the New->DWORD Value
function under the Edit Menu item. Type the value name exactly as shown above.

If you follow that it should fix it.

Hope that helps

ok thanks, but which value?

Double click on the value name
"Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore"

If the value is not there add it as a DWORD.

but does it need a value of 1 or 0?
1. Expand "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters"
2. Change value for "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" from 0 to 1. If the DWORD Value does not exist, create a new one with the exact spelling as above, including spaces but without the quotes.
3. Stop the NTFRS Service (open a command prompt and type "net stop ntfrs")
4. Start the NTFRS Service (net start ntfrs)
5. Monitor the File Replication Service Event Logs for events:
" 13553  The DC is performing the recovery process
" 13554  The DC is ready to pull the replica from another DC.
" 13516 - At this point go to step 6. (the problem is resolved if you receive this event)
6. Using a command prompt type: "net share" and look for the Netlogon and Sysvol Shares to appear. The Journal Wrap error is only fixed after the Domain Controller receives the new SYSVOL replica from a peer Domain Controller. This may take a period of time depending on where your peer DC is located and on bandwidth.
7. Change value for "Enable Journal Wrap Automatic Restore" from 1 to 0.

founf the problem: sysvol was not shared. now it added it manually and it seems to work..
Hi Boxexpert,

Have you done a restart of the DC to verify that the SYSVOL doesnt go back to its original state? I had the same problem as you and the fix listed above did not work for me.
