DFS Out of Sync

Hello,

I have a DFS Replication group which, according to an XCOPY /L states that
the receiving server is missing several files.

According to a DFSRDIAG Backlog check, the servers are "in sync with
partner" with No backlog.

Whats the best procedure to re-sync the files to ensure the content of each
are the same?

Thanks,

Right out of the box DFSR excludes files to be replicated like .tmp files.
Did you remove the default exclusions?

There is nothing wrong with the procedure you used.
