      Hi Swathi

      Hope this helps 

      Can I create an extract and delete the archives?

      Yes. When you create a full extract of data, use the Delete Archive parameter to give you the flexibility of deleting archive and XML files at a later date. Set the Display option to Yes or Mandatory for the Delete Archive parameter. The application generates the archive and XML files and delivers them to the destination, for example, WebCenter Content. The Delete Archive parameter provides you with options to delete the archives and XML files after the application delivers the extract data to its destination. After the application delivers the output, for example, to WebCenter Content, you have the option to discard the archive data and XML files, therefore reducing storage consumption by deleting these extract archives.

      You also have the flexibility to choose whether you discard all the data an extract generates, for example, use the Delete archive information and generated XML option to remove all unnecessary data. Or you can choose the Delete archive information only option to remove the archive data and retain the generated XML data. You may want to keep the XML data for reporting purposes or for future references.
