Syntax

Remove-DfsReplicatedFolder
      [-GroupName] <String[]>
      [-FolderName] <String[]>

      [-Force]
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]

Description

The Remove-DfsReplicatedFolder cmdlet removes replicated folders from a replication group. Replicated folders are logical arrangements of replication that do not contain computer-specific settings.

When you remove a replicated folder, the Distributed File System (DFS) Replication service cannot replicate the folder. This operation does not delete any replicated file data. Use this cmdlet only when you decommission a replicated folder.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a replicated folder

PS C:\> Remove-DfsReplicatedFolder -GroupName "RG11" -FolderName "RF22"

Performing this operation will remove the replicated folder "RF22" and its memberships.
Are you sure you want to continue to remove this replicated folder and its memberships?
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): y

This command removes the replicated folder RF22 and its associated memberships from the replication group named RG11.

Example 2: Remove all replicated folders associated with a replication group

PS C:\> Remove-DfsReplicatedFolder -GroupName "RG11" -FolderName * -Force

This command removes all replicated folders and their associated memberships from the replication group named RG11. The Force parameter specifies that the cmdlet does not prompt you to confirm that you want to remove each replicated folder.
