An archived agent is a protected system's backup chain that 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.
Viewing archived agents
In the Datto Partner Portal
On the BCDR Status page, archived agents will show a value of Agent Archived in the Last 10 Backups column.
In the Device GUI
Click the Protect tab of the device UI, then click the Show Archived button at the top of the screen.
To hide archived agents again, click Hide Archived at the top of the screen.
