Archive is not working, Outlook 2007 .ost file

We have SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007. One of our workstations running Outlook 2007 using a .ost file is having trouble archiving. When I run archiving, it runs, but only for a moment and nothing gets archived.  What should I look at?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you need to enable archiving at the server level. With exchange everything is done on the server

I guess I'm confused.  When I set up any workstation like I set this one up, archiving just works.   It is working on all other workstations and I set this one up the same way using Manual settings to create the exchange mail .ost file.

One thing I did was to bring over a .pst archive file. I wonder if it somehow doesn't like that file?  I see's the file and is directed to archive to it.

Every OST or PST is tied to a specific GUIID and opening a PST (or OST) from a different user or PC is fraught with peril.  You should ALWAYS import the file rather than opening it.
