Service stopped replication on replicated folder

Message: Service stopped replication on replicated folder

The DFS Replication service stopped replication on the replicated folder at local path (path).


DFS Replication cannot replicate the folder because it is in an error state. Typically a replicated folder is in an error state if the configuration is invalid.

User Action

Verify that the replicated folder path configured in Active Directory is valid and has not changed on the local machine. If the path does not exist or has changed, either restore the old path name or change the configuration for replication of the folder to reflect the new path.

This error can also occur if the volume has been dismounted from the local computer.
