Why can't I permanently delete data? [Non-European Industry]

  • Updated

Archiving is the only form of data "removal" in Benchling for Industry users who are not based in Europe. (Academics using our free product can delete data.)

Archiving ensures that data in Benchling can only be hidden from working view and never permanently deleted. 

Archiving applies to projects, notebook entries, registered or unregistered entites, and inventory items. It lets you and your team:

  • Continue to remove items from working view

  • Easily search and recover any archived data

  • Retain complete history of your team's work
