Hi All,

We have two Windows Server 2016 setup as file servers with DFSN and DFSR. One of the file shares has been setup and has been replicating happiy for the last week. The seocnd server as of yet isnt added to the namespace. This morning all of the files on one server dissapeared. I restored these from backup. On further investigation of the event logs I found that for every missing file an event stating: The DFS Replication service detected a file was changed on multiple servers. A conflict resolution algorithm was used to determine the winning file. The losing file was moved to the Conflict and Deleted Folder

Any ideas as to what would cause this for every file / what can be done to ensure that it dosnt't happen again.
