I am working in SharePoint 2013 an I have been tasked to archiving some pages that are outdated, however, cannot be deleted (eDiscovery). The organization did not purchased the Records Management features of SharePoint that 2013 offers. So, I am not sure what the best practices/steps that should be taken. The process I was going to take is as follows: change the permissions of the page to only the administrators. Or create a document library (archiving) and add the pages to the library. This should avoid the page to appear in the search results. I am aware there's third party software, however, that's additional costs. There should be way to archive with only out of box features. This may seem as a simple question but not having access to the full capabilities of 2013 version I want to make sure I am archiving correctly.
Can anyone help me with the best steps/practices to use to archiving without all the 2013 version features? Thanks for your assistance it's appreciated.
