I want/need to archive some of my downloads but my Kindle is the 2 year old version of the "Keyboard Kindle". I have No Idea how to archive. All the info I have gotten from friends and reading the forums seems to be for the newer versions of the Fire or Kindles.

Thanks for any info - I really appreciate it.

Please someone? There has to be someone that has archived books from an older Kindle - I can't be the only one?

Pamela, you archive a title by removing it from your Kindle. Left click on the title and confirm, or right-click and choose "Remove from device" from the context menu.

Edit: If the prompt says "Remove..", the title is from Amazon or your personal documents cloud, that is, it has a backup in Archives. If it is a file existing only on your Kindle (as far as Amazon is concerned), the wording is "Delete...".

Archived items are accessed through a folder at the bottom of the home page (if you decide to re-download those titles). You can also access it from home page menu.

BTW, if you pose a question like this on Kindle Help forum ( ), you will typically get an answer within minutes. "Regular" Kindle forum linked to from the bottom of this page ( ) will also do.

Thank SOO much Dragi!

I am new to the forums and haven't really figured out all of the different forums or areas to actually put my questions - so I appreciate the link a LOT!
