I am migrating from SharePOint 2010 to 2013. What is best practice for archiving the Sites, subsites, list, libraries and content for the SharePoint 2010 environment? Is there a SharePoint Archive Plan template? I need best practice and guidance on how to move forward with this. Thank you in advance.

Hello again,

As we discussed yesterday, using workflows to deal with old files/etc... is a way to go. You could also go through your farm and perform a Powershell script that would iterate through each of your sites, then each of your libraries, then each of your lists, etc... and offline that stuff somewhere else. But you want to make absolutely sure that someone with the right expertise does something like that.

I'd rather go through a site to do it, and use a workflow template to move the files off to another location. Of course, SharePoint provides document management/archiving, etc... but you wouldve set that up before hand, in most cases.

Typically you will find that only a subset of your departments or teams are heavy users, so let's say 20 teams out of 300 actually do most of the heavy lifting and the rest usually dabble in SP.

How about just archiving the whole site once all content is migrated?

More accurately, after all content is replicated.

if you're going to 'archive' the whole site, just create backup of the entire content database and create a new content database for your new implementation. (I hope I'm understanding your question correctly)  :)
