Since migrating to Exch 2007 from Exch 2003, our public folders haven been severly misbehaving.  Items are disappearing, some users can't add items, etc.  (Other question posted for disappearing items, but to no avail.)   I'm thinking the best way to get a new clean group of Public Folders is to create a new set.  However, I'm not sure if I should create a new storage group or simply a new public folder database (under the second storage group where old public folders exists now?  I want to avoid any leftover (and hidden) links to the old serer /replication/ etc.  Your help is appreciated.

Run ExBPA to find out the possible root cause of this issue.                                                      Then enable diagnostics logging for public folders and check each and every event log in application logs to get more details.

The best practises on Exchange 2007 is to have public folders in their own Storage Group. That allows the use of LCR, SCR etc on SGs with Mailboxes, which cannot be used with public folders.

Thanks for your kind input.  There was definately some 'strangling' replication problem.  Also, the Public Folders are on their own storage group.
