Export LARGE Exchange 2010 mailbox to multiple PSTs

I have an Exchange 2010 mailbox that I need to export and send to a business partner. the mailbox is ~30GB and I have been asked to break it into PST files of between 4 and 6GB for transport. Is there an easier way to do this than selecting individual folders and breaking it down manually?
Thanks in avdance,
John

Hi,

I would say that the easiest option would be to do it manually.

You are starting with a fairly small size to start with - only 30GB so it won't take very long.

Posting here probably had already taken longer 😋

Hi Alan,
The first time something like this was requested I did do it manually. Now that it has become a repeat request, the ability to do it within Exchange Powershell and possibly as a script is something I would like to add to my skill set.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I think that you can just  export it for 2010

And then zip it using WinRAR for the size they are requesting you.
Then with all the files within the same folder, you can get the big file back

Hi MAS,
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Breaking by date worked great. The command I used was:
new-mailboxexportrequest -mailbox "[user name]" -filepath "\\[server]\pst$\[username]-1.pst" -ContentFilter {(sent -ge "mm/dd/yyyy") -and (sent -le "mm/dd/yyyy")}

Open in new window

I exported 6 months at a time end that got me to about 4.5 - 5GB per file.
