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.

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

When i run this command

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>$FolderPath = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -Identity sallenpq -FolderScope Calendar | fl FolderPath

and then run this
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>$FolderPath

i get this value
FolderPath : /Calendrier

I want to trim the value "FolderPath : /Calendrier" to get the value "Calendrier"
