    There is a "Compact Now" button that you can find this way:

    First, make sure you are viewing the Folder List (tree diagram to the left of the Inbox).
    Right-click the top level of your Archive folders (if you didn't rename it, it will just say Personal Folders).
    Choose Properties from the bottom of the menu, then click the Advanced... button.

    Do you mean an archive file, or your "everyday" .pst?

    If Jeff's suggestion for compressing doesn't work check to ensure you've "emptied" the deleted items. I've seen that on a number of occasions.

    Archive File Size (Outlook 2000 SR-1)

    My archive file was getting quite large. After deleting a large number of old messages the size of the file had not been reduced. Is there a way to reduce the size of the archive file?

    Thanks jscher2000 that was exactly what I was looking for.
    Leif I wanted to compact archive.pst.

    Zip it; if you are using the No Encryption or Compressible Encryption options, which I believe carry over to archives, the files are highly compressible. I do not know if this is true with the "Best Encryption" option.
