Tools to find out how many Public Folders we have and the usage

We are going to Migrate from Exchange 2010 on premise to Office 365.  Public Folders are not supported.  I am trying to find the best way to determine how many Public folders we have and the usage of each to determine need of these folders and what needs to be migrated.  I will take Powershell commands and any free tools out there to determine this.  Any Power Shell commands I need to export to an Excel Spreadsheet.

Thanks!

To get details of PF's simply run the below command
Get-PublicFolder –Identity '\' –Recurse –ResultSize Unlimited > C:\Temp\PublicFolders.txt or csv

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

We have upwards to 30,000 PFs  is there a command to get the usage for ALL or do I have to do this one by one?
