Cannot access Public Folders after 'Move All Replicas' from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007

Hi Guys,

We've installed a new server with Exchange 2007 on and have migrated all the mail across from the exisiting Exchange 2003 but along this we had right clicked on the Public Folders on the Exchange 2003 box and let it run for 4 days now. Now no-one can access any Public Folders and they don't even show up when you choose folder list and Public Folders in Outlook, the odd thing is that if anyone has a Public Folder as a favourite then they can access it fine.
The Public folders on the 2003 box are showing as 'In Sync' and have 2 copies, if i look at the Public Folders folder on the 2003 box it shows empty but the Public Folder replicas all show the folders there but on the 2007 box there's nothing showing at all.
Any ideas ?
