I need to remove public folders from a front end server. I have "moved all replicas" to the other exchange server and replication status shows "in sync", however when I try to delete the folders from the public folder instances I get "cannot remove the selected replica because a public folder must have at least one replica". If I try to delete the whole store I get an error that I cannot delete the public folders because they contain replicas. There is nothing in the public folders folder on this server. Any help appreciated.
