Moving Staging folders in Windows Server 2008 DFSR

I have set up folders for replication on a file server, replication is one way only.
I initially copied the data to the replication server on the LAN, to speed up initial sync., and then moved the server to the remote site.
They are connected by VPN over the WAN, and there is about 700BG of data.
However, the staging folders on the main server became quite large.
I added additional disk capacity to the main server, and in the DFSR management console I specified new folders on the new disk as Staging folders.  All folders exist on the new disk.
This was done 5 days ago, but the new staging folders are empty, and the old ones are still quite large.
I do not want to manually delete old staging folders in case I cause problems.
Any ideas ?

It sorted itself.
A few days after posting this problem, the two servers were fully synchronised and the old staging folders were empty.
