PST file of Outlook 2010 has separate sections to save emails and other attributes of mailbox like inbox to hold all incoming emails; Deleted Items to hold all emails that are deleted; sent items holding all sent emails and so on. However, when these folders pile up with emails, Outlook suggests moving old emails from particular folder to Archive folder so as to make space for new emails. Thus, archive folder includes varieties of emails that could be necessary at certain point of time.

Emails from archive folder can be lost or deleted due to software conflicts.
