Sysvol problems

By mwuagi ·
We are having a problem... We had some NTFRS problems recently, and we are getting those things under control. While it was going on, however, the Sysvol for our school has grown from 33MB to 3GB in two weeks, with no
change in our staff, and no change in our group policies.

The sysvol used to contain a few folders with "policies" and "scripts". Now it contains 183 "policies" folders ranging from just a plain "policies" to "policies_NTFRS_0074ab3_NTFRS_00xxxxxx" and 8 different "scripts"folders that have the same "_NTFRS_xxxxx" stuff on them.
Our dilemma is this,,,, which ones can we get rid of? I know that all of them are not necessary. What happens is the size of the sysvol slows down and stops the file replication through the staging area, and the problem causes itself to get worse... Anyone out there run into this before?

Sysvol problems

By default, only the policies folders and the scripts folder should be present in sysvol. You might try doing a system state backup first, and then delete all folders except for the policies and scripts (just plain) It sounds like duplication of policies or a problem with DFS. If you do not have service pack 1 installed and are using DFS this problem can occur. Let me know if I can add additional info.

We killed all of the extraneous "policies" and "scripts" folders, and now the system is calming down. Your answer helped, and I think that we are back to normal.
Thanks!
