I would like to move the data in my Exchange 2000 Public Folders to new information stores on the same server.  Again, new info stores *on the same server*.  How do I do this with regards to the export or replication of the data?  Thanks in advance!

Hi,
Have you already created the new information stores. Rehome the PF:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288150

that soulution specifically talks about rehoming to a new server, which as you can see from my emphasis above is not what i'm doing.  are you saying that we undergo the same procedure when moving to a new IS on the *same* server?

replication of data would not work as you can create only 1 PF store on an Exchange server at one time. So, 2 stores cannot exist at the same time.
Why do you plan to do this?

the infostore that houses the PF has 400GB of whitespace.  i'd prefer not to do an offline defrag and instead move the data as we do with mailboxes.  i supposed i could create a new info store on a different server and rehome the data to that server, but would that eliminate the whitespace?  i don't think so.  any suggestions?

if you replicate the data to a new PF store on another server, then only the data would be replicated and not the white space.

if that is the case, it would be the route i would take.  however please let me ask as to your confidence in that statement.  if i act on your suggestion it will be a fair amount of work to allocate the disk space from our SAN to another server in order to create this replica, so i just want to be sure i'll achieve the result i need.  are you 100% confident that the whitespace will not be replicated?  thank you for your efforts.
