Dear Experts

Background:
Windows2008 x 2

I setted up the microsoft DFS file replication between 2 win2008R2 Server.
After exported the DFS health report, i see the following issues.

1. Due to ongoing sharing violations, DFS Replication cannot replicate files in the replicated folders listed above. This problem is affecting 3 files in 1 replicated folders.
Files Path is
\HRAdmin\IT\Production_Systems_MO\File_Sharing\Guidelines\Technical Guides\Increase Staging Size.pdf
\Marketing\Sales & Marketing\Transactions from Centaline\2011\1 - 15 Aug 2011.pdf
\Public\IT\test site office\New Microsoft Office Excel 2007 Workbook.xlsx

The ISSUE is even after i removed the files i still see the some warning.
I suspected that open handles exists.
How do i check & Release the open handles for the above files.

Please kindly share your experience.

Try reboot the servers and check.

Many applications can create a large number of spurious sharing violations, because they create temporary files that shouldn’t be replicated. If they have a predictable extension, you can prevent DFSR from trying to replicate them by setting and exception in DFSMGMT.MSC. The default file filter excludes file extensions ~*, *.bak, and *.tmp, so for example the Microsoft Office temporary files (~*) are excluded by default

Exclude the default file filter excludes file extensions ~*, *.bak, and *.tmp is good move.

I increased the staging size
