Cut string after specific characters occurence

Hi Folks,

I am doing some PowerShell reporting for our mail server with Exchange Management console. I am querying for Quota properties on mailboxes and the output is like:

$IssueWarningQuota = 4 GB (4,294,967,296 bytes)
$IssueWarningQuota = 4.199 GB (4,508,876,800 bytes)

I would like to get rid of everything following GB

so "4 GB (4,294,967,296 bytes)" would become "4 GB"
and "4.199 GB (4,508,876,800 bytes)" would become "4.199 GB"

try this:

$string = "4 GB (4,294,967,296 bytes)"
if ($string -match ".GB")

I tried the following:
[code2=powershell]$mbstats = get-mailbox $mb | where {$_.UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults -eq $False} | ft name,prohibit
if ($mb.IssueWarningQuota -match ".*GB")
$mb.IssueWarningQuota = $mb.IssueWarningQuota[0]

$userObj | Add-Member NoteProperty IssueWarningQuota -Value $mb.IssueWarningQuota
$userObj | Add-Member NoteProperty ProhibitSendQuota -Value $mb.ProhibitSendQuota
$userObj | Add-Member NoteProperty ProhibitSendReceiveQuota -Value $mb.ProhibitSendReceiveQuota[/code2]

But it still returns "4 GB (4,294,967,296 bytes)"

The resulting value is saved in the $matches[0] not in $mb.IssueWarningQuota[0].
Does this work?
$mb.IssueWarningQuota = $matches[0]
