Hey guys, migrating from a 2007 server, which was migrated from a 2003 server.

The public folders are a mess..

tons of owa scratchpad, storeevents, schema-root, all kinds of crap..

What do I really need?  I'm looking to not have everything so nasty after i get rid of my 2007.

I'm good just replicated freebusy and OAB right? the rest who cares?

(I need to support outlook 2003 clients)

thanks!

As long as free/busy data has been replicated to the new server all is good. You may want to use the move all replica wizard which will force all data from the 2003 server to the 2007 server.

I'm not sure of the command but you may need to run this on the 2007 server not the 2003.

Yes this is all good. The other stuff if important should already be replicated as they are system folders.

Outlook 2003 uses Public folders for free/busy information and for the Offline Address Book.

Exchange however will re-create this information so it's not the end of the world if you lose it.
