export Exchange 2010 mailbox to PST


Quick question. I'd like to export mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to PST files but before i do it I want to make sure it keeps the folder structure. Meaning if a user manually created a folder FollowUp it needs to stay there after I export the mailbox.

I will be using New-MailboxExportRequest

Please, advise

It is a COMPLETE export replicating what you would see in outlook. EXACTLY the same layout.
