Export-Mailbox

Hello all, we have few journal mailboxes that needed to be exported to PST files. One of them is close to 155 GB and others are close to 50 GB each. I am using export-mailbox feature but it looks like there is 20 GB limit. Is there a workaround for this? May be third party solutions? I think I might have to filter it down by date..please advise.

Do you have these registry keys that you can change on the system you are doing the export on?

50GB is also the largest so I would suggest you do like maybe 2 exports on the one and 3-4 on the other by date like you suggested.

how does the content filtering switch works?

Here is my power shell command
export-mailbox -identify "nameofmailbox" -pstfolderpath C:\ -baditemlimit 1000 -Maxthreads 10 -enddate "02/01/2011 12:01:00 AM"

I have specified an end date here...but it looks like it is moving messages for the entire mailbox....what am I doing wrong here?

I been specifying date ranges but they go over 50 GB. :( I guess I have to try smaller date ranges. Any of you know what actually happens when the PST file size is 50 GB?

I'm not sure, it just says "The maximum .pst file size supported by Outlook is 50 gigabytes (GB). Therefore, we recommend that you don't import a .pst file larger than 50 GB. You can create multiple .pst files for mailboxes larger than 50 GB by specifying specific folders to include or exclude or by using a content filter. "

Looks like you need to use -StartDate and -EndDate
