Hi Thombie

once a while i was also got struct in such a situation. I have a to export mailboxes of size 52GB. I decided to proceed with PowerShell. But what i observed is its taking a lot time to perform the operation. I don't have much time at that time so i cancel the process and decided to go for third party tool. After searching a lot i have found Systools Exchange Recovery Software.

I Purchased the software, that works fine for me. Hope it will work for you

Thanks & Regards
Dexter

Definitely recommend MigrationWiz from my end, it can do it all. Have used it for numerous Exchange 2013 and Office 365 migrations without issues: https://www.bittitan.com/products/migrationwiz/mailbox-migration

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

ExMerge is not suitable as it has a 2GB limit.  However, you could export the existing mailbox using it by selecting only portions of email to export (by date range, for example).  Alternatively, you could take an OST file and use a third party tool to convert it to a PST.  Or just manually copy the mail over in outlook to a PST.

Otherwise, some of the tools others have suggested could work.
