What is archiving? Archiving is transferring (data) less frequently used storage medium to a different but still organized location where that information is stored and is still trackable when needed again and frees up space for more frequently used archives. Its a good efficient storage management system while cleaning up and organizing the contents (info) and maintaining.
Scanning for archiving is the most preferred method, grab a document or image and scan it to upload it as a digital file. It’s amazing, being able to upload a document onto your computer, and save it as your desired file onto your computer. There are many reasons for doing this, one would be for document management. As handy as this method is more big businesses it can also come in handy for our own personal use too. You can also benefit from sharing documents or pictures to anyone that we desire to send it to instantly. Another reason would be for safe storage, sore away sensitive documents or personal photos incase of any kind of fire, water damage, or theft.

Upload a document at home or the office and be able to have access to it anywhere you are and anytime you need it, very versatile and everyone can benefit from it.
