I have a problem with DFS Replication. I can see that our users have dumped a whole heap of files (approx. 12,000) into a couple of replicated folders and the system is backlogging these files. The backlog is not growing very quickly which suggests that DFS is still working to a degree. However when I run a DFS Backlog report it only gives me the first 100 files. Ideally I want get a list of *all* the backlogged files as I want to move them to a non-DFS replicated folder and then re-introduce them to replication slowly.
Anybody know how to get a complete list of backlogged files?
I've increased the staging area size to 10GB for the affected folders but this doesn't appear to have got things moving. I've also checked the bandwidth between the office and datacentre and I'm not getting anything like the amount of traffic that would suggest the line is saturated (it's a 40MB EFM circuit).
This is an extract from the live log:

Unfortunately I'm not sure how to interpret these errors. Some searching has suggested that this due to temp files not being replicated but the file attributes for this file (0x20) and others I have looked at do not indicate the temporary attribute is set, so I think that line of investigation is a dead end.
