I have been using Exchange 2010 for approximately 3 week.  
Public Folders were there, now they are not.
The edb file is still there and in the same location.
On my database screen I only see 1 database now not 2.
In the maintenance is shows 2 databases available.
How can I remount my public stores?

Check if your PublicFolder Database is logically there:
Open the Exchange Management Shell and run this cmdlet command:
get-PublicFolderDatabase

In case that it is not mounted, you can mount it adding this...
get-PublicFolderDatabase | Mount-Database


Let us know the results

I ended up having to add it in through ADSIedit and put the PublicFolderTree in.  Got it working.

That section of the console, though it does show you the PF database, only shows you database copies for Mailbox databases.

If you want to see PF replicas and so on you'll need to open the PF Management Console via the Toolbox.

connected the PF to Exchange server using "connect to server" through the PF Management Console.
 then unmounted and remounted the PF database
