What is Public Folder Replica?

A copy of a public folder’s contents stored on another Microsoft Exchange Server. All replicas of a public folder are equivalent - there is no master replica for a public folder.


When planning where to host public folders in your Exchange organization, consider the following:

  • The volume of information that will be stored and how much it will increase over time
  • How long information should be retained before it is deleted
  • How many users will access the information and how frequently they will access it
