Exchange 2010 mailbox export to pst

Exchange 2010 gives you the ability to export a mailbox to pst directly without addional tools.
This can be done with Exchange Management Shell (PowerShell) command.

There are only 2 drawbacks.
You can only export to a UNC path and the rights must be correct in place on the shared folder.
The most important right is that the group “Exchange Trusted Subsystem” has full security access on the shared folder.
If this is not set the export will fail.

The command used to export to pst is:
New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox account -FilePath \\server\PST$\account.pst
