I use Exmerge to archive mailboxes to .pst files. i need to import some of these .pst files to a folder under Public Folders. I've granted full access and control to administrator to Public Folders.

when i tried to drag a .pst file and drop to a folder under Public Folders i got this error message:
"Can't copy the items. Cannot complte the copy operation. The items may have been moved or deleted, or you may not have sufficient permission."

any idea why i can't do this?

Are there many items in these folders?
You will have to move less items at one go. I find that you can move about 200 - 250 items at one time, otherwise you get that error.

i've tried .pst file with a few items not even close to 200. does it matter if .pst has inbox, subfolders, sent items...?

What are you trying to import? Folders or content of the folders?

.pst file which contains both folders and contents in folders. does it work that way or you are telling me that i need first to create folders then drag contents over? of course it would work this way but i thought from what i read other posts on this website, apparently i can just drag a .pst file and drop it in a folder in Public Folders, it would work. is that not right?

Error Message:
Can't move the items. you do not have sufficient permission to perform this
operation on this object. see the folder contact or your system administrator.

CAUSE:
Corrupted Public Folder

RESOLUTION:
Create a New Public Folder and move Sub-folders into it.

You cannot drag and drop a complete PST file in to public folders.
Folders might d&d. The problem with D&D from a PST file is that the folder may not create in the way that you want.
