Redirecting "Recover Deleted Items" to another folder or mail box

I need to recover deleted items from several mailboxes, BUT redirect them to another folder or another mailbox all together (either way).  I don't want to recover them back to the original location.  The only way I could think of was to create a PST of the current mail box, then delete all mail items, then "recover deleted items".  Create a PST of that, then delete all mail again, then restore the original PST.  I would have to do this after hours, which is already precious to me at this time.  Any suggestions or hints?

Like many things in Exchange, that feature is mailbox/user centric. Therefore you have to recover the deleted items back to the original location - they cannot be redirected.

The only other option would be to exmerge the entire mailbox, and enable the option to export hidden items (which includes items in the DIR). Then open the resulting PST file and extract what you need.

Thanks, Simon.

If I Exmerge the mail box and export hidden items, where will these hidden items be: in another folder or in the folder they were deleted from?

To be honest I can't remember. I haven't done it for a while.  
A quick look at the readme tends to indicate that it is put in to the original folder. That may be Deleted items, or it might be the original folder if the items were shift-deleted.
