Public Folders are missing! - 6.Mar.2010 11:20:57 AM

I'm afraid I've made a  mistake when I tried to move the Public Folders from our old Exchange 2003 Server to the new 2010 Exchange Server. A few folders was not replicated and I executed "Move All Replicas' as explained in this article:

http://www.simple-talk.com/sysadmin/exchange/upgrade-exchange-2003-to-exchange-2010-%e2%80%93-part-ii/ When all mailboxes are moved to the Exchange Server 2010 Mailbox Server it’s time to remove the Public Folder Database from Exchange Server 2003. Since this Public Folder Database contains a replica of the Public Folder data the replica has to be moved to another server, in this case the Exchange Server 2010 Mailbox Server.
Logon to the Exchange Server 2003 server and open the Exchange System Manager. Navigate to the Exchange Server 2003 Mailbox Server, right click the Public Folder Database and select “Move All Replicas”. Select the Exchange Server 2010 Public Folder database in the drop down box and click OK.
A warning message is displayed that the Public Folder Replicas will be move to the other Public Folder Database and that this can take a considerable amount of time. I’ve seen situation where this took more than 24 hours to complete. Replication takes place using SMTP messages that are sent across the Interop Routing Group Connector to the Exchange Server 2010 Public Folder Database.

Are the folders not replicated lost now or is there a way to get them back?

You mean that not all folders were replicated when you performed the action? Please give some more info on what the error was etc.

Public FOlder replication works via Email messages.
So first of all you need to make sure that the mail flow between Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and vice-versa is working fine.
