MS Outlook archive misses some folders

By Healer ·
I have multiple folders set up in Microsoft Outlook for various types of senders. I am actually using XP Office (2002). The AutoArchive only archives Calendar, Deleted Items, Inbox, Journal, Sent Items and Tasks. I expect it to archive everything but it doesn't. Can somebody help? I had clicked on "Apply these settings to all folders now" button already.

I had that kind of problem and what I did was to move the other directories under the ones outlook backup. So if it was inbox directories they were under inbox in outlook and it worked fine.

Apologize that I have taken so long to comment. I have been waiting for the next archive to happen after I moved all the folders I want to be backed up into inbox folder. I wanted to manually trigger the archive process but couldn't work out what to do. I would appreciate someone could tell me.

Anyway, two archives have happened so far but none archived any sub-folder in the inbox. I wonder why. It is pretty annoying.

It does back up things in the inbox. However, it is somewhat pathetic that Microsoft won't do it better.
