Hello experts---Perhaps one of you can point or lead me in the right direction.   We use Exchange 2010 and on most PCs Outlook 2010.   I have a client that has approximately 200gb in his store.  I am looking for a piece of software that will allow me to create a PST based upon a date range or by year(s), then remove (delete) those year(s) from the Exchange 2010 database.  

Any advise or help in this PST issue would be most helpful.  Thanks in advance,

i'm not familiar with anything that would do something like that.  i would just create the pst in outlook and create a rule with a date range to move the messages from the mailbox to the pst

keep in mind there is a 20gb size limit so depending on how much you need to move, you could be looking at several pst files

You can do :
. On server : you have to do script with Exchange Cmdlet like New-mailboxexportrequest,
. On client : use archiving to pst feature of Outlook

200gb for an Exchange database is not huge, and putting content in to a PST file is rarely a good idea. Accessing them is impossible difficult because you cannot store them on a network share and accessing them over a network for backup will corrupt them, they get corrupt easily and they bloat - 100mb of email in Exchange can be over 300mb in a PST file.

As you can have multiple databases in Exchange, if you are concerned about the size, then create more databases and shuffle the data around.

Archive mailbox is a good option. You can have a sepate DB for the archive mailbox.
But you have to take care of retention polices, managed folder assistants etc.
