Public Folder Statistics--Powershell error

When running the following command, I get the following error:


PS C:\Powershell Cmd>Get-PublicFolderItemStatistics -identity Almeren  (this is a top-level folder)

No existing 'PublicFolder' matches the following Identity: 'almere'. Make sure that you specified the correct 'PublicFo
lder' Identity and that you have the necessary permissions to view 'PublicFolder'.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Get-PublicFolderItemStatistics], MapiOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 254EF81F,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.MapiTasks.GetPublicFolderItemStatistics

What the correct syntax? Should I put the server name first? (which I tried. Same error)


Also tried

Get-PublicFolderItemStatistics -Identity "Almeren" | Select Subject,LastModificationTime,HasAttachments,ItemType,MessageSize | Export-CSV C:\PFItemStats.csv

You have to do the full path for identity.
So if the folder is top level, it will be this:

Get-PublicFolderItemStatistics -identity "\Folder"  

If it is a sub folder then it will be

Get-PublicFolderItemStatistics -identity "\Folder\SubFolder\"

Note the use of " " and you have to use -identity in my experience.

Is there a way to get the Stats of all PF at one time?

Do you realise what it pulls out? It is information about every item, so if you have large public folders it will cough out a lot of content.

I haven't tried this, as I don't have a small public folder database to test it on, but this may work:

get-publicfolderitemstatistics  -identity "\" -Recurse

I know that works for other commands with public folders, but I don't really want to try it with a live system myself.
