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
