Above was the error message. I can access the list at http://win-oql2facn6h8/Lists/Disney/AllItems.aspx?InitialTabId=Ribbon%2EList&VisibilityContext=WSSTabPersistence

I suspect that there could be typos in my cmdlet that leaded to this error, but I've been unable to locate it.

I just forgot a slash here: -itemurl "/Lists/Disney"

This works fine with Powershell!

Export-SPWeb -Identity http://win-oql2facn6h8/ -ItemURL /Lists/Disney -Path c:\Backups\disney.cmp

You need the full URL in your -ItemURL parameter

Export-SPWeb "http://win-oql2facn6h8/" -itemurl "http://win-oql2facn6h8/Lists/Disney" -path "c:\Backups\disney.cmp"
