How to export folders on the exchange server itself

I am trying to export a folder from outlook that is 20gigs, When I try and do it from outlook it keeps timing out.. My guess is do to the size of the folder.

Is there a way to do this from the exchange server itself? or is there a 3rd party tool?

From the server you can use the Exmerge utility.  Outlook cannot be installed on a server running Exchange

There is no way that you can export a 20gb mailbox from the server itself.
EXMERGE is limited to 2gb so would have to be run multiple times.

You will need to do things manually to a PST file, probably some time at once. 20gb is a very large folder and Outlook will struggle to cope.

I have never used exmerge before, is there an option in the program to spread the size into multiple .pst files?

Not that I am aware of.  In fact, I think that there is a 2GB limit on the PST file exemerge creates.... I did some snooping for you, and found this, which is a script that will span multiple PST files for you....
