Re: How to retrieve the archieve data in HP SD 4.5
The SD4.5 Admin guide reads: ... When information is archived, it is copied to a predetermined archive location, and is then deleted from the production database.
The archived information is stored in XML format.
CAUTION Archiving should not be used as a backup solution. Once information has been archived, it cannot be restored. ...
Basically, there is no SD functionality to restore the data once it's removed from the system.
However, since the information is stored in XML format, all you need to do is to extract it from the XML, make it readable to SD and re-import it back using Data Exchange (if I remember correctly, the Archive XML format is not compatible with Data Exchange XML format).
Also, look for workarounds discussed in previous posts...
