SYSVOL Objects replecation across DC's

I have an AD domain with three Dcs. At some stage recently users began having difficulty accessing shares and their re-directed documents folders. I tracked the problem down to the lack of GPOs in the SYSVOL shares on all of the DCs. On one of the DCs I found a folder called "NtFrs_PreExisting___See_EventLog" and the GPOs were within this directory. I manually copied these folders and files using xcopy so as to retain permissions etc back into the SYSVOL/domain.local folder on each of the DC's and set the registry HKEY_LM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters\SysvolReady from 0 to 1. After this I restarted NTFRS and Netlogon and things seemed to start working again. I notice now however that changes to GPS are not propergating across the different DS's and I am un certain how to overcome this issue. Other user entries that are not part of GPOs are replicating just fine , the issue I am having seems to be confined to information that is stored within the SYSVOL share including but not limited to the GPO's

ANy suggestions?

Run through the burflag method to get the replication to start again chose the one DC that is not having issues which is usally your DC that holds the PDC emulator role

Stopped NTFRS service on both DCs.
Make one of the DC authoritative server by modifying registry setting : Navigate to registry HKLM\System\CCS\Services\NTFRS\Parameters\CumlativeReplicaSets and Set the Burflags value to D4. This should be done with server which has the Updated information available or correct data.

Go to the other DCs and make them Non-authoritative by navigating to same registry location HKLM\System\CCS\Services\NTFRS\Parameters\CumlativeReplicaSets and Set the Burflags value to D2.

Many thanks for that quick response. After following your suggestions everything is now replecating on all DC's once again.
One final question on this - should I now delete the  "NtFrs_PreExisting___See_EventLog" entry in the SYSVOL directory now?
Once again, thank you for your assistance,.
