After a failed migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 my users lost access to their Public
I went though the roll back process without any errors but they still cannot see the folders.  I remember I had to run a command when I first installed it but I cannot recall what it was.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

My Public Folders on Exchange 2007 are now corrupt and not usable.  I do have a backup of all of them in a pst file.
How do I candle the current migration request and just set up new public folders on Exchange 2013?

You could possibly use that backup and restore the database to a recovery storage group in 2007 and get the data back in to Exchange 2007. After that follow the above step by step guide for migration.

Also if you want to migrate the public folder information, you can do the PST migration but if you have the public folder database from the old server that .edb file with you you can directly mount it on the new server.

I've had it with the migration process so I just want to delete the Public Folder Database and recreate all my Public Folders in Exchange 2013.
How do I remove the Public Folder Replicas from Exchange 2007?

Please backup your Active Directory before you remove this database. Once the PF's have been replicated properly and rehomed to the Exchange 2013 Server then you can just manually remove the Exchange 2007 Public Folders store.

In ADSIEdit, go to Configuration, Configuration, Services, Microsoft Exchange, FirstOrganization, Administrative Groups, Exchange Administrative Group, Servers, Servername, Information Store, First Storage Group.  Then on the right hand pane, highlight the Public Folder Store and Delete it.

Check this TechNet article it contains the instructions to remove the last public folder database from the Exchange Organisation - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-GB/library/cc164367(v=exchg.80).aspx
