I am currently migrating Exchange 2007 to 2013;
Completed so far:
1) prepared schema
2) prepared 2007 Exchange server with SP3 and Rollup 10
3) migrated users mailboxes
4) migrated send and receive connectors
5) migrated the GAL
6) removed all rolls from old Exchange Server except Public Folders
7) wanting to remove Public Folders so I can un-install Exchange 2007 on old server; it keeps complaining that the Public Folders cannot be deleted because they contain folders.

This is my problem; the old Public Folders appear to be empty but I cannot really be sure. How do I ensure myself they are empty and if they are; do I need to move them to 2013 or not? If not, how do I delete them from old server? If i need to move them; what is a good concise article that I can follow?

Thanks in advance for those who help...
