Calendar items missing after exchange migration

Migrated email from exchange 2007 to exchange 2010 .  Everything seems fine except a user told me some of her items in her calendar from earlier in the year are missing. I turned the old server back on as I hadn't decommissioned it yet and she said they are now back. Another user also said older calendar events that were sent from someone else were missing ( all the ones he had put in were still there)  Is there something I need to do to transfer older calendar items over?  I did go to System public folders and under free/ busy I went to the replication tab and put the new server public folder in there.  I have no idea how to tell if it was successful or not or if that would have even fixed it or not. Any ideas?

Maybe there was a departmental/group calendar that did not migrate? In the Exchange Management shell, run
Get-PublicFolder -Recurse

Open in new window

or
Get-PublicFolder \NON_IPM_SUBTREE -Recurse 

Open in new window

on the old server and the new server and compare that output to see if the old server has items the new server doesn't.

Sorry I took so long to get back. It turns out they archived it into a pst file and didn't know it. I didn't think to look there because we don't really use archiving.  I ran the Get-PublicFolder \NON_IPM_SUBTREE -Recurse  on old and new server and they both have the same lists.


As far as the second article, I couldn't get the commands to run, so once I figure out how to get to the correct path, I will try it, but I followed another article to migrate them over using more the gui aspect rather than the shell. I suck using shell. Thanks for your comments.

Found that the users archived their information, thinking they had lost it in the migration.  We don't promote or use archiving in outlook, so I didn't thing to look their first.
