How long does it take to archive a team or group?
When you archive a team or group, the archive process will start within 24 hours. The time it takes to complete an archive depends on 2 factors:
- The original size of your team or group.
- The archive queue.
ShareGate uses Azure instances to run the process that archives content into the Azure storage. There is a limit of 200 instances running at the same time, so ShareGate creates a first-come-first-served archive queue.

Where is data stored when using the default Azure storage account?
When you use the default Azure storage account, all the data archived by ShareGate is stored in Microsoft Azure's East US 2 region.
