    Can anyone tell me if some how the contents of the SYSVOL\sysvol\<domain>\
    can disappear then replicate around the replication partners and remove the
    policies and scripts folders. is this possible?

    The only reason I ask is this happened to me today where every domain
    controller on my network had an empty directory as per above.

    Also, If someone did delete the contents of this directory, would it
    replicate and remove the contents?

    And a couple of the NTFRS services would no longer start as well.

    I have that scenario floating around in my head, and I have excluded them as
    of know, but if that did happen.... Would it replicate around the domain and
    remove the existing directories?

    While slightly different to your issue, I have seen the contents of the
    NETLOGON share overwritten by a users profile because the wrong path was
    placed in that user's profile path.

    We had to create the "Policies" and "Scripts" directories manually on each
    DC. Why would NTFRS remove all directories through replication but not
    recreate them through replication. we proved this by watching the domain
    controllers sysvol fill up with directories like "Policies_44647" and
    DC1,2,5,DC581 etc. until we created the Polices and Scripts directories on
    each server.

    Is this correct? Veritas worked well in recovering the SYSVOL'. I will say
    that much!
