    Run a  scanpst for the pst file and run the archive again. Scanpst will  repair the errors if any.

    find the scanpst procedure :

    - can you check if the .pst file is 2GB in size? you might have hit the pst size limit. if its yes, you might have to create a new archive.pst file and set it as the new archive folder.

    - i would also suggest you to test dragging email manually one by one or in bulk from the inbox and set item into the archive folder to see which email is giving the trouble.

    Eager to know if you can create a PST and attach the same with the main profile?
    Can you manually move some\any of the mail items from the Mailbox to the PST?

    If not:
    check for any registry or group-policy which blocks you from creating PST files.
