Exchange 2010 archive by size

Hello All,
I know that I can create a policy to archive email after X time, but I am looking for a way to archive email by size.

So if a mailbox gets over 2GB it will get archive.
I have exchange 2010.

As far as i know, there is no such setting. You need to set the mailbox limit to 2GB for all users. Set the policy and let it run everyday.

As far as I know there  is no such automated process , what can help you is ,you can schedule the activity based on your mailbox size growth , you can export total size of the mailbox in CSV format and then run the your mentioned archiving policy on the same CSV file.

This is manually you have to perform  once a week or month as per you need or you can even design the script and schedule the same.

Is there a way to script it via powershell?
something like
Get all mailbox that size is over 2GB, and | archive it to the user archive data store?
