Dragging and dropping public folder in exchange 2003

I'm prepping my exchange 2003 for decommission.  one of the steps requires me to make a new public folder group on my exchange 2010 server and "drag and drop" my publis folder tree from 2003 to 2010.  When i attempt to drag this over, I get the circle with the line through it, indicating that I cannot move the folder there.

Now, just recently, I started the move, moving the folder contents to the new server.  You think it's the move holding up the drag and drop?

Thanks

This is not the way to migrate public folders from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.  Assuming you have Exchange 2003 coexisting in the same organization as Exchange 2010 you'll need to rely on public folder replication to migrate data into the new public folder database.  The new public folder database in Exchange 2010 will automatically receive the public folder hierarchy (folder tree structure and other properties) from any other public folder databases that exist.  Once the hierarchy is in place you'll want to run the moveallreplicas.ps1 script in the \Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\Scripts folder in Exchange Management Shell.  This adds replicas of the public folders to the new database and initiates replication of the data.  Typically you'll need to wait until this replication is complete before you can decommission the Exchange 2003 server(s).

The moveallreplicas.ps1 script has this syntax:
moveallreplicas.ps1 -server <e2k3servername> -newserver <e2k10servername>

ok, opening the exchange management shell...at the command prompt, copied the script to the root of c:, typing the command in at the prompt and I'm getting an error that the command is not a cmdlet, script, etc...

Add the current folder indicator, ".\", like this:
.\moveallreplicas.ps1 -server <e2k3servername> -newserver <e2k10servername>
