    It is best to enlarge the stating quota folder otherwise you might be consuming to much CPU in compressing the information.

    This is a quite good read on how it works.. As the article suggest i would enlarge it with approx 20% percent to begin with (being about 5GB).

    To edit the quota size or location of the staging folder and Conflict and Deleted folder
    Open DFS Management.
    In the console tree, under the Replication node, click the replication group that contains the replicated folder with the quotas that you want to edit.
    In the details pane, on the Memberships tab, right-click the replicated folder on the member with the quota that you want to edit, and then click Properties .
    On the Staging tab, adjust the staging folder quota and path as necessary.
    On the Advanced tab, adjust the Conflict and Deleted folder quota as necessary.
