EventID: 10033 A folder is being scoped by a search which no longer exists

Exchange 2010 SP2
We are experiencing a large number of warnings in the Event Logs for one particular user in the company. I have moved this user to multiple databases yet I still receive the following warnings;
EventID: 10033
Level: Warning
A folder is being scoped by a search which no longer exists. This may result in failures or errors when attempting to update the folder contents. If this message continues to persist for this mailbox, moving the mailbox to a different database may resolve the issue.
Database: A-C
Folder: [MBX:FIRSTNAME SURNAME][COPC Process Certification]
MsgHeader ID: 1f65-F8FCE
Folder ID: 1-4CBCD4B
Search Folder ID: 1-17AFD4B1
Your help is much appreciated.

I would suggest to take the entire data of the Users Mailbox into PST "Disabled the Mailbox" using EMC and then Create a new Mailbox with Existing user and ask him to use the PST as additional.

Make sure to take a dump of Get-Mailbox so that if any customization that might be lost.

I have seen this same error for two shared mailboxes. I think the issue is the Index doesn't update/research as fast as folders in the mailbox. I was able to resolve the error/warning by moving the mailboxes to a different database. ( both were on different databases before and after)

I am now running Exchange 2010 SP2 UR 3 and haven't seen the warning return. I also didn't heard reports of problems when the warning was present. The error was on two mailboxes a helpdesk mailbox shared with 10 users and a networkcenter mailbox shared with 8 people.

Thank you,
