Deleted Items and Inbox archives in different folders??

I set up archiving a few weeks ago. Since that time, Deleted Items and everything else archive to two different folders. How can this be? I cannot find a setting anywhere that shows how to archive messages to two different places.
To aid you in searching for the proper setting, what version of Outlook are you using?

Also check the auto archive setting for your deleted items. Simply right click the icon and go to properties. Once in the properties window, go to the auto archive tab and check to see where those items are going to.

You can perform this for each individual folder.

hope this helps.

Two different pst files? They usually all archive to their own folder within the same pst file. Right click on the folder and choose properties, then autoarchive - check the path under Move to. Also check the Move to path in Options, AutoArchive settings.

Why are you archiving Deleted items? You can use AutoArchive to permanently delete Deleted items after a few days or weeks, but i wouldn't archive them to a new folder.
