I have an 2003 Exchange Server. We recently installed 2008 SBS. We moved all the mailboxes over to the 2008 server. We ran the script to move the the public folders over to 2008. It moved all folder except two of them. They will not move. They have replicated over to the new server, but when I say 'Move All Replicas' and select the new server,  They still stay in the Public Folder Instances.

They are company created folders. If I look on the new server, they are there from replication.  If I go down to  'Folders | Public Folders' all the public folders are there and the status tab lists them as being on the 2008 server Public Store.

The folder properties lists it to replicate to the new server. We left it on for a night to replicate. The new server shows them in the Public Store Database. I just don't know why these ones are staying in Public Folder Instances.

Public Folder Replication some times take a while to complete.Does this folder have more data then others?What happens if you shut down the old server and try to acces those folders?

It doesn't have much data at all, 55MB - 75MB

We have not shut down the server yet to test it.

Try to do this, if the data is still there at all I'd suggest to make a backup of these folders to a PST file with outlook and then remove the old server manualy from the replication.

Thanks. We will turn it off and see if it has any issues and then just back the folders up if they have trouble.
