What is an archived agent?

An archived agent is the backup chain of a protected system which has been permanently converted to a read-only archive by a device operator through the Archive Agent function. Archived agents retain their ability to be used for restoration in the event of a Disaster Recovery scenario, but you cannot write new backups to them.
Archived agents count against the device's total agent limit. The following table shows the total number of archived agents you may have on a Datto appliance at any time:
Any offsite data for archived agents will count against your appliance's total offsite data quota. Any device on per-agent billing will continue to be billed for the archived dataset until you delete the agent locally and offsite.
