    Could you please try on the suggestion in Cause 3:File system corruption is preventing access to the file

    You cannot delete a file or a folder on an NTFS file system volume

  • Hi Bhautik Shah,

    Thanks for your post.

    Could you please try to backup the files, delete all files on both referral targets, do a prestaging to sync the data on both side to see if replication will back to work.

    Please also follow the articles below to recover from Unsupported One-Way Replication in DFSR

    And here is the similar thread discussed before. You could take a look.

  • Hi Mary,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have do the steps of above blog when dfs replication not working, and after doing command and disabled / enabled receiving ( ADC ) member. then after few times all the data are going in to Preexisitng folder.

    From deleting files, i am not delete the files on server as it's a live file server.

    for backup purpose i have created one way replication to another server which is ADC.

    Also i am getting event id 4312 from receiving member.

    Log Name:      DFS Replication
    Source:        DFSR
    Date:          1/21/2016 1:50:54 PM
    Event ID:      4312

    Level:         Warning

    Description:
    The DFS Replication service failed to get folder information when walking the file system on a journal wrap or loss recovery due to repeated sharing violations encountered on a folder. The service cannot replicate the folder and files in that folder until the sharing violation is resolved.
