Public folder contents disappearing, one week after migration to Exch 2007
Posted on 2009-04-02
Public folder contents are disappearing. Contents cannot be seen in Outlook and when I run the get-publicfolderstats command, it confirm my horror that indeed the item counts are ZERO on almost all public folders! Here's the background: 2 weeks ago we migrated from an SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 server with Exch. 2007. During the migration I used the Exch replication to migrate the contents to the new Exch store on 2007. I ran the get-publicfolderstats command before we decommissioned the old server, and all the counts matched a PST file COPY I made just as a backup. Now, however a full week after we removed the old SBS server from the LAN, items are disappearing from most of the public folders! Some of the public folders are not used a lot and I could reimport the SAFE PST copy, but others are active (contacts & calendar) for example. Why are these items magically disappearing and how do I get them back?
