Exchange 2007 to 2013 Public folder migration question

I currently am in the middle of my Exchange 2007 to 2013 Public folder migration.  I have made it to the AutoSuspended state ready to go into the Lockdown stage.  However, my migration was disrupted due to business reasons and I had to put the rest of the Public Folder migration on hold for 2 weeks.   Now that the 2 weeks has nearly passed, I will be resuming the Public folder migration.   Since it's been 2 weeks, should I cancel the current migration by running -
Get-PublicFolderMigrationRequest | Remove-PublicFolderMigrationRequest  

And also should I delete the Public Folder Mailbox I created on Exchange 2013 and start from the beginning again?

Or is there a better way, as it's been 2 weeks since the Public Folder migration has been sitting at the AutoSuspended stage so if I resume the migration, there would be 2 weeks worth of new data that needs to be migrated that has not been accounted for?

Thanks!

If you want you can run the resume command Resume-PublicFolderMigrationRequest \PublicFolderMigration for the changes to get replicated. But i believe you can cancel the migration request and start again. Also if you want you can delete the public folder mailbox.

Hi user...

Yes, R--R is right, it's better to cancel the earlier migration process but don't get panic, you can also resume the migration process

First of all remove the migration request by this command----
Get-PublicFolderMigrationRequest | Remove-PublicFolderMigrationRequest

& thereafter, resume the migration with these 2 commands----

Set-PublicFolderMigrationRequest –Identity \PublicFolderMigration -PreventCompletion:$false
Resume-PublicFolderMigrationRequest –Identity \PublicFolderMigration

Thanks for the advice, what I did was follow R--R 's advice and ran the PS command - Resume-PublicFolderMigrationRequest \PublicFolderMigration   which synchronized the changes made since the original synchronization which was 2 weeks ago.  

I then able to lock down the legacy Exchange 2007 server with the following PS Command:
Set-OrganizationConfig -PublicFoldersLockedForMigration:$true

My Public Folder are now migrated to the Exchange 2013 server.  Many thanks for your advice! :)
