    DO_NOT_REMOVE_NtFrs_PreInstall_Directory
    Policies



    Missing scripts folder

      NO NO NO, do not restore from backup, not that fast any way.
      how many DCs have you got?
      if you got more then one it seems you might have some FRS replication issues.
      do all DCs have the same problem?

      please post the errors in the event log of both DCs under the "File Replication Service" section/tab.

          b/c there is no need to restore from back up if the problem is in the replication and it would do no good, just would create more confusion in the FRS engine having more then one version of files/folders which would result in Morph folders.
          1st - fix replication problem.
          2nd - if the SYSVOL data is old or not valid , then go for Restore, not the other way arround.

            1. If there is a replication problem. The OP never mentioned any other DC's so i'm assuming that there are none. We have restored the SYSVOL folder from a backup and we have around 9 sites with multiple domian controllers.

            2. Depends on how old his backups are. We have ours doing a full SYSVOL backup every night.

              Assumption is the mother of all **** ups, or otherwise know as Assuming makes an ass out of you and me.
              Never assume, there for I asked about amount of DCs.
              if replication of the FRS is not working well a restore would only deteriorate the situation then helping it, FRS has a different replication engine then the classic AD replication Engine you know.

              you can use whatever backup age you would like , in the end we are talking about files, no more (even if the FRS Jet Engine is damaged, there are ways to fix it with whatever files age you would like), the only thing that might be common and related to backup age is the Policy (GPT/GPC), if one was deleted then the age of backup has an effect due to the AD object that was deleted and not the Files in the SYSVOL itself. Again SYSVOL/FRS has a different concept then AD Object, it's not the same thing - at all, the only common thing between the FRS Replication and AD replication is the Replication topology/scheduling but not the replication process itself.

                I think it's wise to wait until the TS respond.

                  Isn't it just. We haven't had a reply so we can only wait and see what the OP say's.

                  Oh and BTW i do know FRS has a different engine

                  Again your trying to teach granny how to suck eggs bud. I know all this.

                  I posted my answer as the OP gave very little information about his/her site/s. I answered because that is all that is required to get the files back.

                  Your assumption is that the SYSVOL is changing constantly in this users enviornment. We have around 9 sites with multiple DC's and had the SYSVOL folder deleted by a consultant. Stopped the FRS service and restored the files from backup and voila SYSVOL was back from the previous nights backup. Our SYSVOL has very little changes, if any, made to it now. In the early days while we were setting up it changed daily for about a week.

                    sorry if I sounded like I tried teaching you something or to harsh , it was not meant that way in any way.
                    any way in your situation you describing on your systems - YES , a restore was needed since it was deleted.
                    but in OP case we have no History of what happened, therefore we should not jump into conclusion that is was deleted.

                    elyounsi - More Info on the case would be nice.

                    elyounsi - it seems you went rogue
