The primary requirements and priorities of ArchiveKeep are to make process of reliable archivation to be simple and easy:

  1. safe replication to other storages:
    • prevent propagation of redactions and deletion of files
    • prevent propagation of corruption and destructive changes of original information,
  2. offline storages - external HDDs - have first class support,
  3. plain files for direct access, maximum compatibility and convenience,
  4. optional server with asynchronous online synchronisation.

Things ArchiveKeep believes in:

  • your data is entirely at your control,
  • plain files for data and existing standards over custom formats,
  • open source,
  • no SPOF, including your laptop having access every online service,
  • no destructive operation allowed unless action is explicitly confirmed.
