We would like to move out public folder store to an external drive for temporary reasons, but the PF grew to 800GB when importing the PST on the Exch2007 migration.  I know the data in those PFs is no more than 2GB, but the online defrag doesn't shrink anything.  Anyone know the best way to create a new public folder database and move the PFs into that database?
