Managing DFS (Distributed File System) Replication:
Edit the quota size or location of the staging folder and Conflict and Deleted folder.
We can edit the quota of the staging folder and Conflict and Deleted folder on a per-replicated folder, per-member basis. You can also change the location of the staging folder.
To edit the quota size or location of the staging folder and Conflict and Deleted folder
- Open DFS Management.
- In the console tree, under the Replication node, click the replication group that contains the replicated folder with the quotas that you want to edit.
- In the details pane, on the Memberships tab, right-click the replicated folder on the member with the quota that you want to edit, and then click Properties .
- On the Staging tab, adjust the staging folder quota and path as necessary.
- On the Advanced tab, adjust the Conflict and Deleted folder quota as necessary.
To determine the size of the largest files in a replicated folder using Windows Explorer, sort by size and add the 32 largest file sizes (16 if it’s a read-only replicated folder) to get the minimum staging folder size. To get the recommended minimum staging folder size (in gigabytes) from a Windows PowerShell® command prompt, use this Windows PowerShell command where <replicatedfolderpath> is the path to the replicated folder (change 32 to 16 for read-only replicated folders):
(Get-ChildItem <replicatedfolderpath> -recurse | Sort-Object length -descending | select-object -first 32 | measure-object -property length -sum).sum /1gb
