DFS Replication to new server not working

Hi, i have done all of our shares except for one (replicating to a new server and then breaking the original connection) but for some reason the one share is not working properly and its possible i might have missed a step and need some help identifying it. I had added the target folder to be replicated to dfs, but when i check out the target folder on the new server, it has a folder in there called "DFSprivate" ? I left it overnight and its still the same...dfs target share

Hey Artie,
Might you have a file screen which is blocking certain file types from saved to the destination folder?
another thought is to restart the DFS service on the target server.

This is still not working. I have waited and the contents of the primary folder have not been replicated to the other folder. However, if i create a text file in the Primary folder, its immediately replicated to the other folder.

so why is this not working for the existing contents?

I'm going to have to use RoboCopy, it seems i cannot figure out how get existing files to replicate automatically to the new server...
