    Question What does Archiving Means ?

    Hello,

    I sometimes think what does archiving of data should do ?

    If i have data in a table and i want to archive some data what I should really be doing which will mean that data is archived and what are its benefits ?

    1. Should i just change the status of the record from active to archived ?
    2. Should i move the archived data to another table , database or db server ?

    What are we really trying to achieve by archiving the data ?

    Thanks.

    Only you can answer those questions, because only you can know what you are really trying to achieve.
