Greetings, jjrr007 !

In Outlook, go File > Data File Management.  There you should be able to access the archive.pst file.

Archive.pst is located in a Application subfolder. C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook  It is a hidden file, so you have to unhide hidden files to see it.Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Best wishes!

If they are currently attached......
On the Go menu, click Folder List, and then click Archive Folders (or the name you specified for the archive location when to enabled it).

If not attatched.....
If you goto FILE - ARCHIVE
At the bottom of the window will be a box identifying where the archive.pst file was written to.

Then FILE - OPEN - OUTLOOK DATA FILE and browse to the archive.pst.
