Export Subfolders using export-mailbox to PST Issue RRS feed

  • Question


  • Hi There,

    I have a funny Issue with exporting Exchange 2007 subfolders to PST using export-mailbox.

    The problem is that with some mailboxes when I export a mailbox subfolder  using the cmdlet below the PST file is empty and there is no error.

    When I do a full PST export all email are exported without any issue.

    Export-Mailbox USER -IncludeFolders \FOLDER -PSTFolderPath \\server\pst\user.pst -Confirm:$false 

    Hope someone can help me figure this out ?

    Cheers,

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I understand that Export-Mailbox with Includefolders and get an empty file, however it works without this parameter.
    If I misunderstand your concern, please do not hesitate to let me know.

    Which version are your used? please upgrade to latest version for testing.
    How about -Exculefolders parameter?

    Please run below command to get the size and structure of mailbox database:
    Get-MailboxFolderStatistics “identity” | FL Name,*size*,*sub*
