Exchange 2010 mapping Public Folder Database


Does anyone know of a method to access files from public folders via UNC path?

Exchange 2000 had IFS that mapped the PF database to a folder structure, i.e. network drive.  Is there a similar option for Exchange 2010?

Basically I have a script that needs a method/path to grab a file from a public folder tree.

thanks but I need a method to access directly via Windows Explorer.  The solution in the link does work in my situation.

Oh! My mistake. I don’t know of a way to script the extraction of public folder data from Exchange 2010 using the basic PowerShell cmdlets provided in EMS… Sorry!

The facility isn't available in Exchange 2010. It was never supported in the older versions of Exchange, and could (and often did) cause corruption of the Exchange database.

Thank you, just wanted clarification.

Do you know of any other options/method to access PF data via UNC path?

there maybe a workaround on how to FTP the content inside a UNC path to a remote site as shown in the URL below.
