I had the same problem a few months ago. It seems to be related to
a previous method of archiving, may be the default one, which relies
on this archive directory. You probably removed the corresponding code
from your .gnus file at some point, but the server is still there and 
regenerates the archive directory at startup. Here is what I did to get rid
of it:

First delete the archive directory. 
Then go to  the *server* buffer (type ^ in the *group* buffer)
and kill the {nnfolder:archive} (type k in front of the corresponding line)
Restart, the archive folder won't be created.

Hope that helps
