Hi,

Check your autoarchive rules to ensure you have selected the correct files/folders.

Agree.  Note that, even if you have "use defaults" on, you have to setup the default per folder.  I believe only the Inbox is set to "use auto-archive defaults".  You'll need to explicitly setup each folders properties you want to include, either using your defaults, or whatever retention range you choose.
Try doing a manual archive. The above answers are correct. go to file and archive and do a archive . let it run and then check the folder.
