Exchange: Cannot delete Public Folder Store

Delete the Public Folder Store through ADSIEDIT

1. Open Adsiedit.msc from run command
2. Navigate to your configuration container 3. Expand to services, Microsoft Exchange, your org name, admin groups, servers, locate your FE server, expand, Expand information store, and storage group that houses your public folder store. On the right pane, delete the public folder store.
