Use the Get-PublicFolderStatistics cmdlet to retrieve statistical information about public folders, such as folder size and last logon time.

Get-PublicFolderStatistics [-Identity <PublicFolderIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>]

Parameter Required Type Description




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The Identity parameter specifies the GUID or public folder name that represents a specific public folder. You can also include the path using the format TopLevelPublicFolder\PublicFolder.

You can omit the parameter label so that only the public folder name or GUID is supplied.




The Server parameter specifies which server to check. If a server isn't specified, the command uses the local server.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Public folder" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
