We are trying to remove a public folder from a Exchange 2007 development environment so we can decommission the existing LUNS & get newer bigger LUNs

When we run this command:

Get-PublicFolder -Server <server containing the public folder database> "\Non_Ipm_Subtree" -Recurse -ResultSize:Unlimited | Remove-PublicFolder -Server <server containing the public folder database> -Recurse -ErrorAction:SilentlyContinue

We get this error:

Remove-PublicFolder : Cannot delete the object '\NON_IPM_SUBTREE\SCHEDULE+ FREE
 BUSY\EX:/o=CHHC/ou=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT)'. Please ma
ke sure that you specified the correct identity and that you have the correct p
ermissions to delete it.
