If you no longer need a database in DISCO, you have two main options: vault and deletion.
If you want to remove only a subset of your data, you can delete individual documents or ingests through the Data Management Suite.
Vaulting is a storage option in which all your data is maintained for a reduced price. You can vault either an entire database or a subset of documents in an active database.
For more information on vaulting, see Vaulting data.
If you will not need your data at a later date, you can delete your database. This process permanently deletes all your data from DISCO. Deleted databases cannot be restored.
Note: Only database admins can delete a database or request a database deactivation. If you are not an admin, please reach out to your firm admin to submit a deactivation request.
Depending on the terms of your contract, deletion may require a 31 day notice. You can submit a deletion request from your 'My Matters' page within a particular review database:
Alternatively, you can fill out the Deactivate a Database form. Database deletion requests through this form may require a small Professional Services charge.
Archiving is an optional step in the deletion process. Before deletion is complete, DISCO can archive your documents by running a production of all your documents. DISCO then sends you the data via FTP or on an external hard drive. You may archive databases on your own or hire our services team to complete the archive on your behalf for a fee
Archived data includes all documents (the natives, near natives, text files, and metadata) and work product (tags, document notes, privilege notes, custom fields, redactions, metadata redactions, and productions). It does not include some application data, such as exhibit sets, folders, audit/document history, search term reports, term highlighting, AI scores, and review stage metrics. If you want to save this information, you should vault your database instead.
