Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In Exchange System Manager navigate to your public folder store and right click and select properties. Under the security tab add the user name with full access. You can then move the shared calendar back into the public folder from the users mailbox. When finished, remove the user name from the security properties.
Only admins can move something from the public folder store so you may want to consider removing this user from any admin groups. Non-admins can only link/copy public folder items and not move them.

    Try this :

    1. Create a new calendar in Public folder.
    2. Drag it to Mailbox. I noticed that the calendar is copied. One is in the
    Mailbox and another is in the Public Folder.
    3. Delete the calendar in the Public Folder, I can still drag the calendar
    back to Public Folder.
    5. Create a Personal Folder and then drag the calendar to Personal Folder.
    6. Delete calendar in the Public Folder. I can also drag the calendar back
    from Personal Folder to Public Folder.

    Please check if there are two calendars in your Outlook, on is in Mailbox,
    another is in Public Folder. If so, please take easy to delete the calendar
    in Mailbox. To do this:

    1. Right click calendar in Mailbox, select Delete.
    2. Click OK.
    If above doesn't work, the problem may be caused by the corrupt Outlook
    profile, please try to delete and then create a new profile for this user
    to see if the calendar can be drag back.

    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Click Switch to Classic View, and then double-click Mail.
    3. In the Mail Setup dialog box, click Show Profiles. Select the profile
    you use, click Remove.
    4. On the General tab, click Add.
    5. In the Profile Name box, type a descriptive name for the new e-mail
    profile, and then click OK.
    6. In the E-mail Accounts dialog box, click Add a new e-mail account, and
    then click Next.
    7. Click the appropriate server type for your new e-mail account, and then
    click Next.
    8. Type your account information in the required boxes, and then click
    9. Click Finish, and then click OK.

    For the Exchange shared calendars
    I can restore from backup I have that option too.¡± in the previous post,
    yes, when you create a public folder in Outlook, it stores in C:\Program
    Files\Exchsrv\mdbdata\pub1.edb on the SBS server by default.

    Hope this helps.
