On a computer that is running Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1), an administrator deletes a store that was being replicated by using Standby Continuous Replication (SCR). However, if the administrator does not remove the storage group that hosted the store or the administrator does not disable SCR before the administrator removes the store, the Microsoft Exchange Replication service crashes intermittently. Additionally, the following event is logged in the Application log:
