Increase garbage collection period

I have DCs in the forest  that have not fully synchronised after Forest and Domain Prep for 2008. its for 59 days. Garbage collection is 60 Days Im afraid when it reaches 60 days it going to cause problem in the Domain. How can I increase the Garbage Collection Period.

ust as Tiras said, but to clarify how:
To change the online defragmentation period you need to change the garbage-collection period by modifying the garbageCollPeriod attribute in the enterprise-wide DS configuration object.
 Your can do this using any Active Directory editing tool, including Adsiedit.msc, Ldp.exe. The path for the garbageCollPeriod of Server1 in the Company.com domain would be:

CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows
NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=SERVER1,DC=COMPANY,DC=COM

You need to modify the attribute garbageCollPeriod under the path CN=Directory Service,CN=Windows NT,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=,DC=,DC=COM.
