Do you have access to the server or Central Administration? Have you already seen these steps to backup and restore a site (somewhere else)?

backing up and restoring a site requires that it is a site collection, otherwise the powershell just fails. These are only subsites

micbra, the granular backup / export method I posted does not require a site collection. It is for a site (sub-site), list or library.
