When you try to remove Public Folder Database from Exchange 2007 server you get
Object is read only because it was created by a future version of Exchange: 0.10 (14.0.100.0). Current supported version is 0.1 (x.x.x.x)
Since you don’t see Exchange 2007 Public Folders Database in Exchange 2010 GUI, you must open Exchange Management Shell on your Exchange 2010 server and run following command:
  1. Get-PublicFolderDatabase –Server YOUREXCHANGE2007SERVERNAME (this is just security measure not to delete some other database)
  2. If Public Folder Database name is correct than run

    Get-PublicFolderDatabase –Server YOUREXCHANGE2007SERVERNAME | Remove-PublicFolderDatabase

  1. OK, its been a while since this article but Exchange 2013 throws a spanner in the works in that whilst it causes exactly the same error, because it no longer has public folder databases (it just uses the normal mailbox database instead) the Remove-PublicFolderDatabase command no longer exists?!

    HEEEEELLLPPP!!!

  2. @Anonymous - You must provide more data...
    1. Are you migrating from earlier version?
    2. Have you followed all the steps during the migration process?
    3. You created Public Folder database as suggested from Microsoft's technical articles? (it is important because you need to "attach" folder tree to newly created database before you delete old public folder databases - check http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj150486.aspx)

    If you just want to delete old public folder database and you are SURE about all the necessary steps of migration process, which you executed correctly, you could delete public folder database using ADSIEdit.
