When searching for *.pst check that you are searching Hidden Files and Folders on Entire C drive or all local drives.

Might also try searching for *.ost

If you go to Tools>Options>Other>AutoArchive
Where does it show the file is being created?

If you then Go to you Nav Pane in Outlook
Rigth Click on the Inbox
GO to Properties>AutoArchive

Is it set to Auto Archvie according to the Deafult Settings
Or is it setup to autoarchive into another custom location
