The Storage Team Blog about file services and storage features in Windows and Windows Server.
The DFS Replication (DFSR) service stores files that encountered replication conflicts and pre-existing files that were removed during initial synchronization in the 'ConflictAndDeleted' and 'PreExisting' folders respectively. Our resident DFSR guru, Ned Pyle has just submitted a new and updated script to restore data from the DFSR ConflictAndDeleted or PreExisting folders for disaster recovery purposes. Head on over to the MSDN code gallery and grab the latest version of the script.

Hi, Ned here. Just a quick heads up - there is a new DFSR data recovery script posted on the File Cabinet
Thank you very much for this script! Please keep announcing your script at filecab as I have a hard time checking all those different blogs and sites around.
Thanks for the feedback. We try to post and cross-post lots of Storage related content in FileCab, Ned’s scripts included ;)
Hey - you saved my day. Many thanks for this script :-)
