Is there a way to make a backup from Exchange 2010 mailboxes to pst files to another drive location, possibly using Powershell.

We have a group of users that are in a specific OU that will be leaving our company. In preparation for their departure I need way to make a backup of users mailboxes from this specific OU from exchange 2010  to .pst files which would be saved onto a separate drive.  This would not be a move, just a backup to usable pst file so they could be imported if necessary. I still need all the mailboxes intact on the Exchange 2010 server.  

Is there any way to do this, perhaps a Powershell script or another utility? I need this as soon as possible, I am kinda in a time crunch.

Thanks in advanced for any help with this.

Does this process still leave the mailbox intact on the Exchange server as well? Because the users will still be using the mailbox for few week until final cutover.

Do the users need to be out of their mailbox when running?  


 I did a test on a test email account and the process worked fine and your right it did leave email intact. I just need to know the answer above and I can move forward on live accounts?

Thanks

Nope new export request should not require them to be out of their mailbox.

Thanks for your help Joe.  For this reason I am giving you points also.  The first commenter was the solution but then failed to respond to my additional questions.  

Thanks
