Manually Clearing the ConflictAndDeleted Folder in DFSR for Windows 2012 R2

There is a great post on Technet on Manually Clearing the ConflictAndDeleted Folder in DFSR, however it was written back in 2008 and it seems things changed slightly, so I thought I better write a quick blog post in case anyone runs in to the same issues I did.

Please refer to the above article first, I had issues running the CleanupConflictDirectory method.

Eg.

WMIC.EXE /namespace:\\root\microsoftdfs path dfsrreplicatedfolderinfo where “replicatedfolderguid=’70bebd41-d5ae-4524-b7df-4eadb89e511e’” call cleanupconflictdirectory

ERROR:
Description = Invalid query

 

Look Familiar?

Switch the quotation marks around so instead try:

WMIC.EXE /namespace:\\root\microsoftdfs path dfsrreplicatedfolderinfo where ‘replicatedfolderguid=”insert-GUID-here“‘ call cleanupconflictdirectory

 

This should work! (If not, are you using an elevated Command Prompt?)
