I have 2 exchange 2003 SP2 servers configured with double take.  My second (target) exchange server Public database got currupted and I am not able to mount the database and i am not able to delete the public store. Now I want to create new replication set in duble-take, So I want to delete both mailbox store and public store in second exchange and will create a new replication set, so I can get all new database. Is any way I can delete both mailbox and public folder database. (Or if i create a new replication set without deleting public folders in target server, will it create new public database from first exchange server, this will also solve my problem)

Stop the Double Take service on Target as well as source and then rename the DB on target servers.Run Double Take Application Manager again and do the sync again so that it will sync the DB.
