Delete TotalDeletedItem in Users' Online archive only

I'd like to purge the TotalDeletedItems in my online archive for users since they are growing rather large and I don't plan on recovering items from archive mailboxes.  The command to run for regular mailbox is:


Search-mailbox -identity "name" -SearchDumpsterOnly -DeleteContent

There does not seem to be a switch for -archive?

Does the mailbox have single item recovery enabled?
Get-mailbox smtp | fl *item*
 If yes please note your need to disable  this first.

Set-mailbox smtp -singleitemrecoveryenabled $false

The command :
get-mailbox <name> -archive | search-mailbox -searchdumpsteronly -deletecontent

this worked but also deleted totaldelteditems form both regular mailbox and archive.. I just need it to remove from archive?

I had to use the MFCMAPI approach and cleanup each individual Archive recoverable folder.  not pretty but effective, have lots of whitespace now :)
