How best to merge/combine two Exchange 2007 Public Folder databases?
Posted on 2014-10-22
We recently moved Exchange 2007 to different hardware by adding the new server to our existing Exchange organization, migrating the resources to the new server, then decommissioning the legacy server. After doing so, the age limits were incorrectly set on the new public folder database, thereby deleting a large number of critical items from the Public Folders.
We have a backup of the public folder database from the old server, and have confirmed that the lost items are in it.
What's the best method to restore the lost items into the current Public Folder database? Files have been added since the age-limit deletions, so we can't simply replace the db.
Is there an established method of merging two Public Folder databases such that the result is the aggregated contents of both?
Thanks for your assistance.
