I upgraded from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 and migrated public folders. Permissions on public folders were lost (known issue to Microsoft). I gave a user "Owner" permissions on the root of Public Folders. She has a Contacts folder in her personal mailbox that needs to be moved or copied to Public Folders.
She can create a new folder under "All Public Folders." However, when she or I attempt to move her existing Contacts folder under "All Public Folders," we get an error that states "Items cannot be created in the root of Public Folders."
I read the "Additional Permissions" area of this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd876947(v=exchg.141).aspx
After reading the above, I performed the steps in this article: http://careexchange.in/how-to-give-permission-to-a-client-to-create-top-level-public-folder-root-public-folder-tree-in-exchange-2010/
Before and after the above, same problem.
Because a folder CAN indeed be created in All Public Folders, but not moved there from a user's contacts, I'm not sure what the problem is.
I either need to be able to move the folders, or just create them and copy/paste the members. However, I ALSO cannot find a way to copy/paste the members of a contacts group. They can be selected by Shift-Click, but upon right-clicking after selection nothing happens, nor does Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V work.
She could manually add all the members to the new folder, but there are several of these to manage, and moving the folders would be much more efficient.
