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.

Try the PFAdmin Tool, you can download it here you can configure permissions then you'll be able to access via Outlook.

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.
