I have aproblem with our replication setup it has been working fine for six months and now has stopped with the following errors

The DFS Replication service failed to recover from an internal database error on volume D:. Replication has been stopped for all replicated folders on this volume.
Additional Information:
Error: 9214 (Internal database error (-1605))
Volume: 3C4655C7-0B85-11DD-83F6-000C290B217C
Database: D:\System Volume Information\DFSR

this keeps happening on a 30 minute cycle

any help appreciated


Watch Question

Have you checked system and application log for other errors?
Also if it is possible try rebuilding DFS again.



system and application are fine, re-building dfs seems a bit extreme is their any other solution
Still searching for a solution. Will update you the same.
