Public folder question between 2003 and 2010

I have one 2003 and one 2010 servers. I am moving gradually users over to 2010.  I do have public folder in 2003 and 2010.  I have setup replication between 2003 and 2010.  Users in 2010 are able to see 2003 public folders.  But, I have noticed that in 2010 server in public directory folder the replication did not COPY the 2003 public folder over.  I thought that is what replication does.  I guess it does not.  So, my question is this, what does replication mean, and is this how it suppose to work?  The second question is it possible to COPY the public folder from 2003 to 2010 so it resides in both places or should I NOT do this until the end when I moved all my users over to 2010.

Thanks

I think you will want to continue to replicate to the Exchange 10 server until all users have been migrated.  Then you can move all replicas from the Ex. 03 to the Ex. 10.  This will remove all ex. 03 replicas on the server and they will only reside on the Ex. 10 server.  Here is a link that might help you.

So,

I want to be clear here, I should keep everything as it is until the end and then I move my public folder over?

Yes.  That would be my recommendation.  Make sure the replications are occurring and you should be fine.
