If you have both folders open in Outlook, you should be able to drag and drop the contents between them.

Switch Views

Switch to folder view (lower left in navigation bar). Then you can drag and drop all items inside of a folder. Just can't drag n drop the folder itself. You must select items. Be warned though. Drag and drop is a "move" operation which you MAY want to do anyway just to clean off the exchange server. You may want to do a select all then copy and paste to duplicate the items.

Change views of the contact folder to something like "names list" or "phone list" so you can easily select them all (ctrl+A) before copy n paste.

By the way, archiving only works on the local PST file. Files on the exchange server (Mailbox - yourname) are (or should be) backed up by the server. And, archiving actually moves the files out of the PST file into the archive file. What you MAY want to be doing is a PST backup instead of archiving. There's an add-on you can download from MS Office Update which will schedule an automatic backup for you.
