I am trying to decomission an old Exchange 2003 SP2 server in an Exchange 2007 enviorment but first need to see how to fully syncronize public folders then turn off replication.
Most folders are about 90 percent replciated but after weeks they never get 100 %.

Any suggestions? Should I use EXFolders, does it work with Exchange 2003?

This is a real pain unfortunately, on almost every migration to 2007 I've done have had issues with PF replication, worth working through these articles step-by-step, read slowly and take your time.  Your only other option is to export your public folders to PST from Outlook, delete it on Exc 03, and create a new PF store in 07 and re-import it.  That's the quick way but messy.

I also did alot of Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007 Migrations and did have to resort to the PST export import method. I know PFDAVadmin is not replicating all the folder 100% am  hoping to find a new tool to force replication 100% then remove replcation from the Exchange 2003 server
