Selecting "Do not archive items in this folder" for Multiple Folders at Once

I have several folders created in Outlook 2010 and I'm using Auto Archive but only on certain folders. In my Auto Archive setting I accidentally clicked "Apply these settings to all folders now", which I did not want. Now all my Outlook folders have Auto Archive settings applied.  

I can go back and select "Do not archive items in this folder" on each individual folder but this is time consuming. Is there a way to select "Do not archive items in this folder" for multiple folders at once?

I'm sorry to tell you there is not a way to select "Do Not Archive" for multiple folders. It has to be done for each folder.
