SBS 2003 Server giving this error (see attached) for a while now.

Out of the 5 possible reasons given in the error:
1 - Not true
2 - Do not know where the "journal" is or how or who can delete it
3 - Possibly, as CHKDSK /R /F has been used before
4 - No way to confirm that
5 - Possibly, so what?

Any suggestions will be welcomed.

I thought it might give you a lead with troubleshooting the journal aspect. That article started with "Fixing a little bit of Journal Wrap" and then he ran into issues with SYSVOL.

Then again his fix didn't work so well.

the journal wrap "fix" took the FRS database back to a clean state without anything useful in sysvol.

This is the article they refer to

Overview

FRS is a multi-threaded, multi-master replication engine that Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 domain controllers use to replicate system policies and logon scripts for Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, and earlier-version clients. In Microsoft Windows NT, the LanMan Replication (LMREP) service handled replication. FRS replaced LMREP in Windows 2000. You can also use FRS to replicate content between Windows 2000 servers that host the same fault-tolerant Distributed File System (DFS) roots or child node replicas.

When you deploy Windows-based domain controllers or member servers that use FRS to replicate files in SYSVOL or DFS shares, you may have to restore or reinitialize individual members of a replica set if replication has stopped or is inconsistent. In some scenarios, you may have to rebuild the whole replica set from scratch.

The FRS BurFlags registry key is used to perform authoritative or nonauthoritative restores on FRS members of DFS or SYSVOL replica sets.
