public folder stores

In Exchange server manager if we go unders Folders/Public folders, the we open the properties of any public folder and check the replication tab, we can see The public folder stores where it's replicated and sometimes if not always the store where the public folder is created is also in this tab.
Now how do I know which public folder store that originally the public folder was created from? without going to public folder store and make a search for it, especialli if I have many public folder stores in my organization?

thanks

Why do you want to know where your PFs have been created if I may ask? Actually this doesn't matter at all.

In the properties' replication tab the first server entry should be the one where the folder was initially created. If you add servers they are added below and there is no way to change the order so the first entry should be the server where the PF was created. That is of course only if the server where the folder was created was not removed from this list already.

<<<That is of course only if the server where the folder was created was not removed from this list already.>>>

that means if initially there were 2 servers showing up and the one on which the PF was originally created is removed, then we'll think that the server left on that list is the one that from which the PF was originally created.
So it's misleading.

That's correct. But I don't see how to see somewhere else where a PF was originally created. There are a few PF tools and I had a look at some but wasn't able to find anything related to your request. Of course you can look for yourself:

What is your problem with replication actually? Maybe I can help you without answering your inital question?

we found some PF created and replicated, and we want to know from which store were originally created and who has created them.
