How to manually archive in Outlook 2010

Click the File tab.

Click Cleanup Tools.

Click Archive.

Click the Archive This Folder and all Subfolders option.

Click folder you wish to archive.

Click the triangle next to a folder to view and select subfolders. NOTE: All items within the selected folder and all its subfolders will be archived.

Specify a date under Archive Items Older Than:

Under Archive File, click Browse to specify a new file or location if you do not want to use the default file or location. Browse to find the file that you want, or enter the file name, then click OK. The destination file location appears in the Archive File box.

Select the Include Items With "Do Not AutoArchive" check box to include any items that might be individually marked to be excluded from automatic archiving. This option does not remove that exclusion from these items, but instead ignores the Do Not AutoArchive check box for this archive only. If you choose to manually archive these items during this procedure, the items will again be subject to the Do Not AutoArchive setting unless you manually override that setting again in the future.

Click OK.
