Where do I find my auto archived emails

I used to simply see archived folders that had all my past auto archived emails when I had outlook, but I cant find that or any setting that lets me have the same in my em system. the settings note under mail/automatic archiving under a box for account preferences and notes ‘none’ under the heading of ‘archived folders’, but I never had the chance to set it up or know how am I meant to change that default as I do want all my past retained emails in my archive folders that are stored on my computer. how do I set it up (in simple plain english) and how do I get back the ones that seem to have disapeared, but had never been asked if I wanted and where I want to store them, I see nothing in my program files under the em progarm that notes it is an archive folder.
