Export-Mailbox cmdlet question

I ran the followong cmdlet to export folders from a mailbox to a PST

Export-Mailbox -Identity "Display Name" -PSTFolderPath C:\temp -StartDate "01/01/2000" -EndDate "09/23/2010" -IncludeFolders "\Calendar","\Contacts","\Notes","\Tasks"

but when I open the PST with Outlook 2010 or 2007 all I get is a Deleted Items folder and a Search folder. The process bar shows that data is supposedly being copied to the PST and the size of the PST is in the megabytes. Why can't I see the PST's data?

The PC I ran the cmdlet on is Win 7 with Office 2010 and Exchange Mgmt tools 2007 SP1

thank you

Just run this

Export-Mailbox -Identity "Display Name" -PSTFolderPath C:\temp -StartDate "01/01/2000" -EndDate "09/23/2010"

See the guide here too.

My goal is to export only certain folders, not the entire mailbox.

As you can see from my original post the folders switch is included.

Export-Mailbox -Identity "Display Name" -PSTFolderPath C:\temp -StartDate "01/01/2000" -EndDate "09/23/2010" -IncludeFolders "\Calendar","\Contacts","\Notes","\Tasks"

you should upgrade you client tools to SP3
the syntax you have will work, and i've done it before with SP2 and rollups

Can I run my client tools with SP2 or SP3 even if my server is not yet SP2 or SP3?
