Migrating Exchange 2003 Public Folder data to Exchange 2010

One of our branch offices exists as a separate Exchange org/ AD forest. Exchange wise, they are running Exchange 2003 and we are looking to move to them to Exchange 2010 as part of the company-wide strategy.

The issue is that they heavily utilise Public Folders and we need to migrate that data to Exchange 2010 with the least amount of downtime.  They have a seperate PF server named Branch-ExchPF1, and we've built a corresponding Exchange 2010 PF server for them named Branch-ExchPF2.

Does anyone have any experience/ recommendations for carrying this out safely/with the least amount of downtime?

Look for least downtime you can move that using some 3rd party tool or PFInterOgr or can use Outlook

As Rancy said above, 3rd party tool like Quest can be really helpful.
