This article was previously published under Q221093
NT File Replication Service (NTFRS) transactions are stored in the Ntfrs.jdb Jet database and in a set of log files in the default paths %SystemRoot%\Ntfrs\Jet and %SystemRoot%\Ntfrs\Jet\Log. Administrators can relocate the Ntfrs.jdb and log files to another logical partition or physical drive as necessary. WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
No user interface exists to change the location of the NTFRS database during or after Setup.
NtfrsNOTE: If you did not copy the NTRFS folder and its child folders in step 2 from the original location to the new folder in step 2, and simply defined an alternate working directory in step 3, the FRS database tree structure and Ntrfs.jdb file in step 4 are automatically created when the service next starts in step 5. In other words, an implicit non-authoritative restore (burflags = d2) occurs along with the change to the working directory.
