How can I get Windows DFSR to stop replicating [volume uuid]\System Volume Information\DFSR\Private ?

Hello everyone. My current system that I am running is Windows server 2008 R2. I'm currently using DFS to replicate files from one server to another, however im encountering a problem. On some nights DFS slows down and gets bogged down with error messages like the following:

The DFS Replication service detected that a file was changed on multiple servers. A conflict resolution algorithm was used to determine the winning file. The losing file was moved to the Conflict and Deleted folder.
 
Additional Information:
Original File Path: Volume{f34124c3-ba21-4660-8e77-65a50dc0c24b}\System Volume Information\DFSR\Private\{1FFFF2B8-43EF-4444-A39B-0FC6F92A8ECE}-{81A31A4F-1AFE-41EF-ACCC-A5CF034E927C}\ConflictAndDeleted\modules-{6CA05F7B-C1BE-4BA1-90A7-756960017573}-v3286821\Accounts\metadata
New Name in Conflict Folder: metadata-{6CA05F7B-C1BE-4BA1-90A7-756960017573}-v3287376
Replicated Folder Root: C:\Storage\TTG
File ID: {6CA05F7B-C1BE-4BA1-90A7-756960017573}-v3287376
Replicated Folder Name: TTG
Replicated Folder ID: 1FFFF2B8-43EF-4444-A39B-0FC6F92A8ECE
Replication Group Name: TTG

For some reason DFSR is trying to copy it's own private file and it's causing a lot of these errors and bogging down the system. Any ideas on how to prevent it from doing this?

Thanks,

Hello
Open DFS Management console (dfsmgmt.msc), Under Replication directory check that "System volume information" folder or "System volume information\DFSR" is not in the replication list.
