    Anyone know how to use Powershell to deselect the "Move deleted files to Conflict and Deleted folder" ? From the GUI its in the advanced tab of the replication memberships properties. I haven't been able to figure it out.

    I can't see a way to do this with any of the cmdlets but poking about with ADSIEdit and the AD provider I've found that unchecking the box changes the msDFSR-Options attribute value from 0 to 2.

    If you navigate to the DSFR-LocalSettings container which you'll find in the Computer object container you can use Set-ItemProperty to change the value:

    cd AD:                   
    cd '.\DC=contoso,DC=com'      
    cd '.\OU=Domain Controllers'
    cd .\CN=LU-DC1
    cd .\CN=DFSR-LocalSettings
    cd .\CN=bce541f3-affb-4529-a68a-91629cc6e4af
    Set-ItemProperty -Path .\CN=bce541f3-affb-4529-a68a-91629cc6e4af -Name msDFSR-Options -Value 2

    My Script to change all DFSR replicated folder to not use conflicts and deleted

    $WEB01 = "ServerName"
            Set-Location "AD:\CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=$WEB1,CN=Computers,DC=domain,DC=com"
            $DFSRSHARES = Get-ADObject -Identity "CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=$WEB1,CN=Computers,DC=domain,DC=com" | Get-ChildItem | Select-Object Name -ExpandProperty Name | Out-File C:\Temp\\DFSR_Repl_Web1.txt
            $DFSRSHARES = Get-Content C:\Temp\DFSR_Repl_Web1.txt
            ForEach ($DFSRSHARE in $DFSRSHARES)
                    $Subscription = Get-ChildItem -Path "AD:\CN=$DFSRSHARE,CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=$WEB1,CN=Computers,DC=domain,DC=com"  | Select-Object Name -ExpandProperty Name
                    Set-ItemProperty -Path "AD:\CN=$Subscription,CN=$DFSRSHARE,CN=DFSR-LocalSettings,CN=$WEB1,CN=Computers,DC=domain,DC=com" -Name msDFSR-Options -Value 2
