Archive and Purge Summary


In this document we discuss the archive and purge process and who it will affect.

To maintain system performance and to reduce storage and maintenance resources we need to implement and communicate Boise State’s established archive/retention process for Boise State University managed content. This policy will affect:

  • All academic Blackboard course sites & Content (content collection)
  • All inactive Blackboard major/minor course sites & Content
  • All Boise State video (rich media hosting) server content
  • Classroom Capture / streaming content

Course sites greater than 2 years will be archived using known OIT Application admin team working processes that will not affect course content when course is restored.

Course sites greater than 5 years will be purged (deleted) from the archive system using known OIT Application admin team working processes.
