Cannot uninstall Exchagne 2007 server

I receive an error

Uninstall cannot continue.  Database "Public folder Database"  The public folder database "Mail1\Second Storage group\Public folder Database" is the default public folder database for the following mailbox database.
MAIL1\First Storage group\Mailbox Database.
MAIL1\Recovery Storage Group\Mailbox Database
  Before deleting the public folder database, assign a new public folder db to the mailbox database.

This is on an Exchange 2007 server.  I have already migrated all the mailboxes and public folders to the new Exchange 2010 server.  I am trying to uninstall 2007 and decommission the server.  I cannot find a Recovery Storage Group on the server.

I have run the following commands already:

Get-PublicFolder -Server {name of server} "\" -Recurse -ResultSize:Unlimited | Remove-PublicFolder -Server {name of server} -Recurse -ErrorAction:SilentlyContinue

Get-PublicFolder -Server {name of server} "\Non_Ipm_Subtree" -Recurse -ResultSize:Unlimited | Remove-PublicFolder -Server  {name of server} -Recurse -ErrorAction:SilentlyContinue

In that case, use adsiedit tool and check if you see any RSG. Share the screenshot. Then i can suggest next action plan.

I still get the error that it is the default database for the Recovery Storage Group.  How do I delete the Recovery Storage Group?

do I use the ADSIedit tool on the Exchange server?  What exactly am I doing with ADSIedit?

No mandatory to use from Exchange server. However if it is there on Exchange server you can use it. Browse under configuration partition>services>MS Exchange>Administrative Group>Server>

Check if you find any RSG.
