Retro Tech: Exchange 2000 Public Folders

EE
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?
JohnDemerjianAuthor Commented:
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?
rakeshmiglaniCommented:
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.
