Restarting of DFS Replication

I use DFS Replication around Australia and last week, one of my Main Server drives failed.  After replacing the drive I did a full restore from tape and forgot to restart DFS.  As I replaced a drive and restored from tape, will the remaining, remote copy of the data, view itself as the MASTER and potentially remove new files created on the replaced drive or will they simply synchronise with no data loss?

Thanks

I hope you mean just lost data drive containing data and you have replaced it.

How your DFS replication is setup?

Is it set for TWO way replication? or it is having read only replica?

If you have not deleted restored server as a member from DFS replica, your new files will get replicated to replica partner and vice versa
No further configuration is required.
The sequence could be:
Just replace new drive,
Restore data from backup and reboot the server
This should not affect any thing.
