Exchange 2013 Public Folders

I have an Exchange 2013 server holding 110GB of Public Folders. I am in the middle of an Office 365 Cutover but would rather move these files out to a shared drive on a file server rather than try to migrate into Office 365. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this or a really nice tool I can buy that would bring the Public Folders into a shared drive on a Windows server?

You can export the public folders into PSTs or find a software that does the same if you have large PF structure.

If I export to PST what would be my maximum size for each PST? Will the files retain permissions in the PST files? I would like to hear of recommendations of software that can perform the migration function to a shared drive and still retain permissions in the folder structure.

Simply exporting the Public Folders to PST will not retain the permissions. You will need to use Get-PublicFolderClientPermission and Get-PublicFolderAdministrativePermission export them to a CSV and then use Set-PublicFolderClientPermission and Set-PublicFolderAdministrativePermission, after you have done the import of the Public Folders.

I believe you only need a software which can export public folders into PST format, and then you can move this data anywhere, either shared drive on a Windows server or any other location. Download Stellar edb to pst converter tool to export edb file or large size public folders data to PST file. Check this utility here http://www.stellarservertools.com/exchange-edb-pst-converter.php

I believe this is the tool you're looking for!

I have the PST files created from the Public Folders. I guess my need is how to import these PST files into Office 365.
