In Windows Server 2003, the size of the ConflictAndDeleted folder may exceed its configured limitation. By default, the limitation of the ConflictAndDeleted folder is 660 megabytes (MB). When this problem occurs, the ConflictAndDeleted folder may exhaust available disk space on the volume on which the folder resides. Additionally, the Distributed File System (DFS) Replication service cannot replicate any files.
This problem occurs because the ConflictAndDeletedManifest.xml file is corrupted. This file stores information about the current contents of the ConflictAndDeleted folder. The DFS Replication service writes to the ConflictAndDeletedManifest.xml file when files are added or removed from the ConflictAndDeleted folder.
To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
1.Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
2.Type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER
net stop dfsr
3.Manually delete the ConflictAndDeleted folder. This folder is located under the DfsrPrivate folder at the replicated folder root. For example, if the replication folder is D:\Data, the ConflictAndDeleted folder is located at D:\Data\DfsrPrivate\ConflictAndDeleted. To see this folder, you have to clear to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box in Windows Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:
a.Open Windows Explorer, and then click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
b.Click the View tab.
c.In the Advanced settings pane, click Show hidden files and folders under Hidden files and folders.
d.Click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box, and then click OK.
4.Type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER
net start dfsr
