Exchange 2010 to 2013 public folder migration

Last Modified: 2016-03-24
I am having issues in a large organization with public folder migration. The issue is that they fail to migrate because of spaces in the "mailnickname" attribute. There are over 5000 folders total so manually removing all the spaces in the names is out of the question. I attempted to use a script to enumerate all of the issues to replace the invalid characters and it fails because of the output is too large. Anyone have some other method to manage the "mailnickname"?

[PS] C:\PFmigration>$pfs= Get-publicfolder "\" -recurse | where {$_.MailEnabled -eq "True"} | Get-MailPublicFolder | whe
re {$_.alias -like `* *' -or $_.alias -like `*,*'}
