Microsoft recommends that you use Method 1 or Method 2 to work around this problem. If you cannot use one of these methods, or if they do not work around the problem, you can set the USN Journal size back to 128 MB. This method must be applied before you restart your computer or before you restart FRS. If FRS is started after you apply the 811370 hotfix, you must reformat all volumes that contain FRS-replicated content to decrease the USN Journal size.
To set the USN Journal size back to 128 MB, before you restart FRS, and after you have applied the 811370 hotfix, follow these steps:
- Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
- Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NtFrs\Parameters
- Look in the Name column. If the Ntfs Journal size in MB entry does not exist, follow these steps to create it:
- Click the Parameters subkey. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
- Type Ntfs Journal size in MB, and then press ENTER.
- Double-click the Ntfs Journal size in MB entry.
- In the Value box, type 128, click Decimal under Base, and then click OK.
- Quit Registry Editor.
- Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
- In Services, right-click File Replication, and then click Start.
