Archived Database retrieval

Archived Database retrieval

It was recently brought to my attention that our database has been auto archiving information after 3 month of being in a closed status. I need to run reports on that data and haven't been able to. I need to see about getting the archived data reinstated to be able to run reports on it. Please let me know the steps or procedures on un-archiving the information.

The reports are need ASAP and will determine if a new employee is warranted for our department, so there are a lot of people waiting on the outcome.
