Hi All,

What is the process, if any, for deleting public folders. Not the whole store just certain public folders.
we have convinced one of our business units to stop using them and need to remove the folders so that nobody tries to use them.
Just want to make sure we don't overlook an steps so that they remove cleanly from all servers

Take the backup of PF stores before deleting and take those PF into PST using Outlook.
Remove replication partners from the PF, contents of the PF will disappear itself. Delete PF.

Well one way is deleting them. Another way is hiding them. And a 3rd option is removing the permissions (thus rendering them invisible through Outlook).

If you delete them and the user for what ever reason needs them back, if you´re lucky and still within retention time, the quickest way of restoring a PF is through PFDAVAdmin.
