What is Archiving?

06 Oct 2013

Data archiving is when data is kept for long term storage. This data storage is done off-site and the data is removed from your local device to free up space. The data might not be in use; however, it may need to be accessed and so it must be stored for future reference. Archiving is typically used where data needs to be stored for compliance purposes.
