moving public folders to exchange 2007 server

Dear Experts,

I'm at the final stages of moving exchange 2007 services to another host (also exchange 2007). The Public folders that exist on the old exchange server were used for a small project years ago that is no required.

Do I need to move the Public Folders to the new exchange server if they are no longer required?

How can I manually, forcibly remove the public folders from the old server in order to uninstall exchange server?

Thanks

If you don't need them anymore then don't migrate and get rid of them would be the better choice.
