There are two ways to limit the size of your archive. First, you can manually delete sermons from the Current Sermon view
. Deleting a sermon marks it as inactive, and moves it to the Inactive Sermons view for 30 days. While inactive, the sermon can be undeleted. At the end of the period, the sermon will be automatically removed..png
''This is the safest way to manage your sermons. It gives you control over each sermon, and provides a way to undelete.''
The other method is to enable the Multimedia Auto-Delete service on your Site Settings page. This service limits the disk space used by automatically removing multimedia files whenever a pre-set space limit is exceeded. Files are removed starting with the oldest. Once removed, the files cannot be undeleted.
Limits are specified in whole units of 1GB. The special value of zero (0) can be used to indicate no limit (never auto-delete). Separate space limits can be specified for audio and video file types.
While auto-delete is enabled, an additional setting on the sermon form becomes available to disable automatic deletion on a case-by-case basis for each sermon. To use this feature, edit the sermon to be protected from auto-delete, and check the box labeled, "Disable multimedia auto-delete".
''Multimedia Auto-Delete is an advanced feature, and does not provide the safety of an undelete. It is disabled by default.''
!!Factors Affecting Archive Size
There are three factors which govern the size of your archive: the number of streaming formats, the bitrate of the streams, and the length of your sermon.
If you use the Publisher to encode your sermons, the number of streaming formats that are used is controlled on the Site Settings page:

The bitrate of a stream is the amount of bandwidth that the stream will use when it is played back, and is expressed in Kilobytes (K). The higher the bitrate, the better the quality, and the larger the file. It's best to
choose at least one stream at 20K or slower. This is the maximum bandwidth of a 28K modem. About 40% of homes in the North America still use a 28K modem connection.
