Do not archive flagged/follow-up items in Outlook 2003

Outlook required me to split the PST file into 3 archive files to be more managable, fast, and stable.  Thi sis fine and makes sense.  Problem is that the flagged messages are also moved to the other archive PST file during the archive process.

I use search folders to organize the flags and catagories for my work flow.  Issue is that due to the archiving, now a lot of items are split across multiple PST files making the search folder lose its purpose.

Is there a way to tell a search folder to look in multiple PST files ?

Or can the archive method be told to not touch the flagged items ?

Or is there a better way of doing this (still using flags in Outlook) ?

THank you

Thank you.  I havw also found that marking a folder to not archive and moving your saved messages there can also be helpful.
