Getting ready to move to Exchange 2010 and want to get rid of all of our Public Folders that are used as department calendars.  I found some suggestions on this site regarding third party products, however, I would like to extract the data without having to learn an additional piece of software or make a purchase, etc.  I would like each individual public folder's contents exported to its own pst file.  Is that even possible to do without a 3rd party product?

OK.  I see a list of all my public folders, and right-clicking on one does not give me an option to do that.  Where do I look for that option?  Do I use the Copy Calendar option from the folder menu?

File menu | Options beings you to a dialogwindow... select option "advanced" .. theres a "export" button. Click it and complete the wizard.

This is for Outlook 2010... but the steps are similar to Outlook 2007

Oh how simple!  I have a group policy in place to not allow creation of pst files, though, due to data retention policies...it appears that it will work after I get my computer to not have that policy, though....my problem.  Thanks so much for pointing out the obvious.

You are welcome :)

Either take all of the PF in one pst or split them up, depends on how large your PF are.
Try not to make the pst larger then 700mb ( I prefer smaller ones ), they tend to take a long time to open and slow down your computer when you import them into your new environment.
