We are moving our on-prem Exchange 2010 environment into O365.   We are stuck in determining whether or not to move the public folders into the cloud.  

Is there a way to generate reports to find out which public folder(s) were last used and who accessed them?

get-publicfolderstatistics should give you the information you want in Powershell on the 2010 server. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997949(v=exchg.150).aspx has more.

You get some "built-in" scripts with the install media, in this case try the AggregatePFData.ps1 as detailed for example here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee633474(v=exchg.141).aspx

Or this one: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com:443/office/Snapshot-report-of-Public-21235573

Getting the user is a different story, I'm not aware of any method that can give you that information.

I have tried the script in link https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com:443/office/Snapshot-report-of-Public-21235573.  

I drop a piece of mail to a public folder.  I do not see the result file contain the last access date.  

Please advise again.  

Thanks.
