Exchange 2010 - View all users deleted items folder

Hello Everyone,

I want to find out everyone's "deleted Items" folder size in exchange 2010.  When I  run the following powershell command

Get-Mailbox | Get-MailboxStatistics | sort TotalDeletedItemSize -descending | ft DisplayName,TotalDeletedItemSize, FolderPath > c:\deleteditems.csv

I get a list of their "deletions" folder and not "deleted items" folder.

Does anyone know the powershell command to view the size of everyone's "deleted items" in exchange 2010?

To export you need to change the "ft" to "Select-Object" afaik.
Try this

Get-Mailbox | Get-MailboxStatistics | sort TotalDeletedItemSize | Select-object DisplayName,TotalDeletedItemSize | export-csv c:\deleteditems.csv

Hello Patricksr1972,

Thanks for the suggestion, but it did not work.

When I run the following command:

Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -id| Sort-Object
FolderSize -Descending | FT  folderpath, foldersize, ItemsinFolder -autosize

I get the following result

FolderPath                     FolderSize                      ItemsInFolder
----------                     ----------                      -------------
/Deleted Items              5.786 GB                          10000
/Sent Items                    2.936 GB                             40000
/Inbox/Test                    267.7 MB                               1050

When I run the command you gave me
Get-Mailbox | Get-MailboxStatistics | sort TotalDeletedItemSize | Select-object DisplayName,TotalDeletedItemSize | export-csv c:\deleteditems.csv

I get the following result for the same user

Test User      59.56 MB

I am trying to find the size of all "delete Items" folder for everyone in the company.

Are you trying to get the size of the  deleted items folder  per user or the total deleted items size of the whole company?

very very very simple

Get-Mailbox -mailboxsize unlimited| Get-MailboxFolderStatistics | ?{$ -like "*delete*"} | select Identity,name,FolderSize,FolderAndSubfolderSize | export-csv C:\report.csv
