How to Edit the Quota Size of the Staging Folder

DFS Replication uses staging folders as caches for each shared folder to replicate new and changed files that are ready to be replicated from sending members to receiving members. These files are stored under the local path of the replicated folder in the DfsrPrivate\Staging folder.

By default, the quota size of each staging folder is 4,096 MB, and the quota size of each Conflict and Deleted folder is 660 MB. The size of each folder on a member is cumulative per volume, so if there are multiple replicated folders on a member, DFS Replication creates multiple staging and Conflict and Deleted folders, each with its own quota. If the quota size is too small, the DFS may has an issue to replicate each other. in this case, you may need to modify the quota size. To edit the quota size or location of the staging folder and Conflict and Deleted folder in Windows 2008, please follow theses stpes:.

1.Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DFS Management.

2.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.

3.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.

4.On the Staging tab, adjust the staging folder quota and path as necessary.

5.On the Advanced tab, adjust the Conflict and Deleted folder quota as necessary.


For Windows 2003 and 2000 server, you can modify the size by running regedit. To increase the size of the staging area, change the following registry setting to reflect the amount of space that is needed (enter it in kilobytes). For example, if you need to replicate 1.2 gigabytes (GB) of data, increase the staging areas of the inbound and outbound partners to 1.5 GB to ensure that the staging areas can accommodate all data to be replicated.
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Ntfrs\Parameters\Staging Space Limit in KB

Data type: REG_DWORD
Range: 0x0 - 0xFFFFFFFF KB
Default value: Default= 0xA5000 (660000 KB = 660 MB)

For example, 1.5 GB = 16e360 (1500000 KB = 1.5 GB)
