Exchange 2007 Export-Mailbox Help

I need to run a export-mailbox weekly to move the mail from the inbox to an archive folder under the same email account. I would like to create a sub folder for each weekly archive to be the date of the archive run

Export-Mailbox -Identity journal -includefolder '\inbox'  -TargetMailbox journal -TargetFolder archive\date


I know I can add the -startdate $((get-date).adddays(-7))  -enddate $(get-date) to pull the data by the date

I would like to name the folders of archive by the name of the date.

example

Archive
       061013
       061713

Thanks

Thanks I  for the info

I just tested and it failed after I ran it a second time

could not create the directory because c:\users\archive already exsits

I was hoping to run this like outlook does for archiving  move all archive messages into an archive folder

Like

inboxc
    archive
         201301
         201302

etc

This is copying everything to the local hard drive I would like to keep it so I can look at the email based on month and year

Any ideas
