Backup exec difference between backing up and archiving

Hello experts,

I am new to Backup Exec, I am trying BE 2010 R2 nowadays.

I am confused about the difference between Backing up and Archiving option. As I understood, files are backed up to a media server, and after that they can be archived as an option.

Would you please describe what is the benefit of archiving then? Isn't it sufficient to backup only? And why isn't it possible to use BE Retrieve with backed up data without archiving?

Hi

When a backup is made, a copy of the file is written to media. When an archive is made, a copy of the file is written to media and then the original file is deleted.
