Archive and Restore

Archiving allows you to move an asset's original format to another storage, for example if you don't need access to it very often or if you want to make sure that certain users will not be able to delete it.

Archiving a Format

If the file isn't archived, and you have the roles can_archive_formats and can_read_storages and there is a storage with archive set you can archive files.

  1. Go to the asset
  2. Open the formats panel
  3. Right click on the format
  4. Select Archive Format
  5. Select the archive storage if there is more than one.
  6. Click to confirm.

Restoring a Format

Icons show the archive status of the asset. These are to the right of the approval status. Archived status is also shown in the formats panel.

This asset has its main original format online, but it has also been archived.

If the format is then deleted from the main storage it will be marked as deleted on the main storage, and an additional icon is shown for that state. It is possible to restore it from archive once in this state.
