Is there enough harddisk space where you try to create the PST file?

Assume the mailbox is not that big, what error do you get? Does the user have write access to where-ever you want to copy?

What if you create a directory like  c:\mailtemp

and try to export there? What happens?

I created a folder in the root of C: and gave full access to users/authenticated users
I ran Export wizard,selecting :
Export to a file -> Outlook Data File (pst) -> Selected mailbox -> Selected Include subfolders -> browse to created folder -> after 8 MB transfer stopped

Go into Exchange Management, Recipient Configuration, Mailbox
Give yourself Full Access Permission
Wait for her mailbox to appear in your Outlook
Export her mailbox, including subfolders, from your Outlook into a local .PST on your system
