Hi Guys,


I'm currently running Exchange 2010 SP3 running on Server 2012.

My problem is this. I'm almost done migrating my exchange from 2007 to 2010, when I come to stage of deleting the replicas of the 2007 exchange server (so that I can uninstall the exchange 2007), I ran this command instead " remove-publicfolder" and it deleted my public folders from BOTH my 2007 and 2010 servers!

In essence, what I did was this:
http://blogs.technet.com/b/bill_long/archive/2011/06/11/do-not-use-remove-publicfolder-to-remove-a-public-folder-database.aspx

I have managed to recover a .edb file from the last good backup (2 days before this dumb move). My question is, how should I approach this restore?

I'm currently using a 3rd party tool to extract .PSTs from the edb but it's slow and I dont know if it would be 100%....

Assuming its ok to overwrite whatever is left for the pubfolder in the exchange 2010 since last backup, what should i do?

Thanks in advance!
