If you want to manually archive your emails, you can create your own Personal Folder and drag all the files from your email onto your personal folder.

If you intend to use the auto archive feature in Outlook 2010, you need to specify how often to archive and how old the email items are for archiving.  See links for details.

After you click Cleanup Tools > Archive, are you:
Checking "Archive this folder and all subfolders"
Highlighting the top line above "Inbox"
Setting the "Archive items older than:" date
Checking "Include items with Do Not Archive checked
??

Highlighting the pst folder name is usually the issue but I just want to know that you understand the settings.

Outlook archives according to the modified date. If you add the field "modified" to the folder view, see if the dates on the items you are expecting to archive are later than the date you are setting.
