When I try file/open/outlook data file it takes me to an archive folder that
is empty. Is there another way to find my archived messages?

Check your Archive settings, from there you can see both the path & Archive
name, then open that Archive, if its not already open

First I suggest doing a search on your pc for all .pst files.
You may have files stored in another location besides the default.
Then if you have discovered more pst files, note the path and then try to
open them. You may have to attach them again if you have previously deleted
your email account and recreated it. Importing them also can pull them back
to whatever folder you designate.

You can also go to the control panel, select mail and you can then note the
path currently being used and any others data files present in the current
profile.

I hope this helps you,

Dan

Are you sure you have any archived messages? If so either you're using a
view that's hiding them or you've got another archive folder somewhere.
Here's some general info about AutoArchive that might be useful:
