Start with a report mode and see if there are as many items as you'd expect that meet the archive eligibility criteria

Did any provisioning groups change recently?
Did any policy changes get made recently?

OK so then you will have to do a bit of leg work.
It could just be that there arent as my eligible items to archive as there were before

are there any items left in the MSMQ when you get in in the morning? specifically the A5 queue?
Can you run a report mode to have a look at the number of eligible items in each mailbox?
What kind of policy do you have set up? Age based? Quota based? Age and quota based?
How do you set backup modes? by windows scheduler? pre/post backup scripts?
do you have any events in the event logs showing that the tasks have failed or gone to sleep?

Hello Dinesh,

Did this get resolved? If yes, can you mark a post as solution?

You have items in your A5 queue. This means that EV has not finished processing all mailboxes. You als have some items in A7, and A3. If yu monitor that does that (A7/A3) go down, to 0?

To run reportmode, select the mailboxarchiving task, rightclick, Run Now, Report Mode.

The report will be in the ..\enterprise vault\reports\mailbox archiving\ folder.

That will show what should be archived.

As JW said, any events in eventlog indicating a problem?

Thank you, Gertjan, MCSE, MCITP,MCTS, SCS, STS
