Exporting an Archive Mailbox with Exchange Server SP1 Mailbox Export Request

You can also export a user’s Personal Archive using mailbox export requests simply by adding the -IsArchive parameter to the command.

PS] C:\>New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox alan.reid -FilePath \\esp-ho-ex2010a\pst\alan.reid.pst -IsArchive

Open in new window

We have tried this option but it is taking full mailbox PST backup means primary mailbox and archive mailbox but we want only archive mails pst backup.

How I can take only archive email backup.
Take a look at the multi-mailbox search feature, it lets you search all mailboxes and then if it finds any matches copies them to a special mailbox. There are loads of features in Exchange 2010 that should let you do this pretty easily now.
This thread may give you more about the backup as a pst file

I suggest you simple way, connect mailbox to Outlook and Export as PST from Outlook, easy and fast.
the suggestion of sumitgupta85 is correct, if you add the option -IsArchive, you will export only the archive mailbox
