Copy the code to the notepad, and save the file with an extension PS1.
Example: folderpath.ps1


$FolderPath = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity sallenpq -FolderScope Calendar | fl FolderPath
write-host $FolderPath

Open in new window


Then run it from the powershell line

Hope it helps

Can you explain what you want to accomplish?

Meanwhile take a look on the following code.


get-mailboxfolderstatistics myusername | where {$_.name -match "Inbox|Deleted|Sent|Calendar|Drafts"} | sort-object Name | ft Name, FolderPath, ItemsInFolder, FolderSize -auto

Open in new window

You've been confused by the format-list output. Remember that every value in PowerShell is part of an object, and as such is the value of a property. Even strings and numeric values are (simple) objects.

Never use the output of format-* for further processing. Formatting is done as last action before displaying results.

What you want to do is one of the following lines:
$FolderPath = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity sallenpq -FolderScope Calendar | select -Expand FolderPath
$FolderPath = (Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity sallenpq -FolderScope Calendar).FolderPath.ToString()

Open in new window

if you insist in loosing all properties of the result, and only have the path as string.
