Archive pst's are just straight files and aren't used within exchange. Just copy the files to wherever you want to store the backups, or use any backup tool to do this. Just make sure the files aren't being used while backing up. Otherwise there is no special requirement.

That has some good information. I was looking for a specific program that could be set to back them all up. I was going to store them on the server and have them backed up there. I understand this could cause some network issues.
