Windows 2008 DFS Storage Size Differences

Hi,

We have 3 Windows 2008 DFS servers that replicate to each other.  Each of the 1.99TB of space, but they all have different disk usage for some reason.  For example

server 1  = 25GB free space
server 2 = 33GB free space
Server 3 = 9GB free space

I cannot figure out why this would occur.  None of the servers have page files assigned to their disk and VSS is also not assign to any of the disks.  why would they not all use the same amount of space

I would guess conflicts that got saved in the conflictsanddeleted folder - one reference: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2008/10/06/manually-clearing-the-conflictanddeleted-folder-in-dfsr.aspx

But if that's not it, I would use a tool like Beyond Compare to compare the contents of both drives.  It should highlight the differences
