Re: SharePoint Archiving Advice #SharePoint #content-management #archiving

This is very much an "it depends" scenario; it's hard to provide generic advice. For team sites where you want to preserve the content, you can flip the site to "read only" and that keeps the content available for as long as your retention policies require but ensures that no new content is added. For other types of sites and content, you should align your archiving strategy with your records retention policy. The approach you choose depends on what you are required to preserve and what content you want to continue to make available as a resource or best practice. That sometimes mean moving the "good stuff" to a more permanent active location and then disposing of the entire site.
