Microsoft Server 2012 R2 with DFS and AutoCAD

We have three servers running Windows Server 2008 sharing files using DFS.  For several years we've stored AutoCAD files on the DFS.  Recently we added a Windows Server 2012 R2.  After finishing the initial sync of the DFS we noticed that occasionally when people save an AutoCAD file to the DFS the file disappears.  Everytime we find it in the Server 2012 ConflictandDeleted folder of the DFS.  
It doesn't happen everytime we save an AutoCAD file but it does only happen to AutoCAD files.  Any idea why?

The size of staging folder might be less due to which it is causing the issue. You can check the event log for the errors. Refer the below mentioned article which might help you for resolution.

CAD files are typically large and as mentioned above, it is the quota restrictions for the staging folders causing issues.

Staging Folder for the 2012 server is 48096MB
Staging Folder for 2008 servers is 48096MB

I think 49GB of storage space for the staging folder should be more then enough.

49GB has been the configuration of the staging folders on all 2008 servers for over a year.
The staging folder for the 2012 server was set at 49GB when it was added to the DFS.

In the end it was determined that this combination of software was incompatible and not support by the manufacturers.  We downgraded the server to 2008 R2.
