                *Start>Settings>Control Panel>Mail>Data Files.
                 *You will see where your current archive pst is. Locate the location by browser
                 *Now move that archive.pst file to the location you want.
                *Then remove the old entry under Data Files and add the new path of your archive.pst

Nael_Shahid,

By default archive.pst is located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\archive.pst folder.

To change the path, you do not need to change the registry.  In Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Other > AutoArchive.  There you can set the path to where you want to put archive file.
