This file would generally be created on the local machine (unless using folder redirection). If at all cost refrain from loading pst files from shared resources as this is a killer in network performance.

Hello raj008,

You should verify that the archive.pst file is saved on local drive and that user can access it by opening another personal folder.  Then you can delete the archived data from Exchange.  

Remember that Outlook archives data based on last access date, not the date of the email.  So do not delete email not in archive file.

Hope this helps!
