Move Single Public Folder Exchange 2007 SP1


We are running Exchange 2007 SP1, and have built a seperate network running next to our production network which is PCI compliant.

We are running Exchange 2007 SP1 on the compliant network as well and I would like to move certain Public Folders over.  Is it possible to backup and restore individual public folders, not just the whole database?

Yes it is. You can use PFDavAdmin to do it or you can create multiple replicas of that Public Folder. When you move Public Folders across, you can move them one by one. You have a choice of Keeping a copy at each server.

Some Info regarding this:

Disregard the above link as it is not relevant to your situation. Use this link instead:

HI, It just Occured to me that you can even create a PST of that Folder from Outlook :)
Just use Export from Outlook menu and select the folder and you got a copy of the public Folder.

The second link doesn't seem to say how to move a single folder (maybe I am being blind).

Have tried to backup using PST, but Outlook says it cannot backup this folder type (it was a public calendar).

Any other suggestions?

Since this is a Calendar Try this:
you can export Exchange public folders to another location. For your public folder calendar, you'll need to use Outlook to connect to the public folder and then create a view for the folder that displays all the items as follows:

1. In Outlook, select View -> Arrange By -> Current View -> Define View -> New -> Table (name the view whatever you'd like) -> OK twice -> Apply View.
You will now see all the calendar appointments in a view that's easy to manipulate.

2. Next create a new Outlook .PST file (Can Be Blank)

3. Then create a new folder in the Outlook .PST file that 'contains appointment items.'

4. Select all the items in the Exchange public folder and drag or copy them into the Outlook .PST folder.
