Powershell can convert MS Exchange Server 2007, 2010 and 2013 EDB files easily in Outlook PST File. Here are the steps to export EDB files to PST with powershell commands:

  • Open Powershell tool and Add Snap-in with Add-PSSnapin microsoft.exchange.management.powershell.e2010 command.
  • Create a new Folder and Right click on it.
  • Go to properties, select share folder tab and then click on share button
  • Allow Read/write permissions to this folder
  • Copy the path of shared folder and note it down
  • Now entire this command line:New-MailboxExportRequest –Mailbox MailboxName –FilePath EnterFilePath
  • Here MailboxName is the folder which you want to export and EnterFilePath is the path of folder where you want to store the PST file. This will create a new PST file of your Exchange Server Database.

    In this way you can migrate from EDB to PST using Powershell. Another way to transfer EDB to PST is by using ExMerge.exe tool . This tool allows you to login in Exchange Server and then export EDB files to MS outlook. However it works only for earlier Version of Microsoft Exchange Server.
