Trouble removing Public Folder on EX 2007

I'm having a really hard time remove the public folder from exchange 07. I migrated to exchange 2013 and in to process of decommissioning the SBS 2008. I get a folder replication error that has taking me to ADSI-Edit to remove PF. When I run C:\Windows\System32>Get-PublicFolderDatabase I get:

Public Folder Database    SERVER  Second Storage (Attached picture)

But the database does not show on ADSI-Edit.

Any help on this would be great!

Thank youdesktop image

You have removed everything from the public folder database, so there is only a few bits left?
If so, you have gone too far in to the tree - which is why it is blank. Go back a level, right click on the key and choose Properties and you will see all of the configuration bits.

Well what I'm trying to do is to get the pf database to show up in ADSI-Edit so I can delete it and uninstall exchange 2007.

It is there in ADSIEDIT. You have gone too far in to the tree. You have selected the database. You need to select the storage group.

OMG, I after reading your solution again a bit more slowly I got it. My apologies. I was expecting to see the database on the left hand side. I did as you mentioned and went up the tree and deleted "Second Storage Group"  I was able to continue.
