Check this link out Based upon the error I am assuming you are running 2010 RTM and if so I would personally recommend that you upgrade to SP1 and RU2 since many issues are handled as well as enhancements to the import export process. NOTE: Many of the commands change is SP1 so be sure to check them out as well and here are a few links to get you started that you will need post update to SP1

FYI, if you are interested in a GUI based solution with additional benefits such as the ability to open any Offline Exchange 2010->5.5 Database as well as any Online Production Information Store to then Export, Recover, Find or Delete the desired data check out Lucid8's DigiScope I think you will find it very useful.
