It sounds like the archive pst file has errors. What you need to do is run SCANPST to repair the errors in the file. Do a seach for scanpst.exe and then run this on the archive pst file and hopefully this should resolve the issue.

What you could try is create a new pst file and then import all items from the archive pst file inbox, sent items etc.
