Exchange 2007 corrupted Public Folder

Current configuration:

1 exchange 2003 server, 99% of users are on this server
1 exchange HUB/CAS server
1 Exchange Mailbox Cluster

I set up replication for my public folders and at some point last night, the public folders on Exchange 2007 crashed and I have been unable to recover.

I had thought about just blowing away this public folder database on 2007 and setting it back up since all of the good data is over in my 2003 installation.

I went into 2003 and removed all of the replication.

Problem is that I cannot keep the 2007 public folder databases mounted long enough to remove all of the replication.  Therefore, when I try to delete the database, it complains about there still be replicas out there.

Any suggesstions?

Make sure first you can take system state backup and Go ahead you can do without any issue.
Delete the Public Folder Store through ADSIEDIT

1. Open Adsiedit.msc from run command
2. Navigate to your configuration container 3. Expand to services->Microsoft Exchange,->your org name-> admin groups-> servers-> locate your FE server-> expand-> Expand information store-> and storage group that houses your public folder store-> On the right pane,->delete the public folder store.
But Make sure chose your currect server name .
