Is there a way to archive my previous years? If not can I delete them and later restore them if needed?

We have years all the way back to 1998. We would like to archive everything before the year 2011. Is this possible? If it is not possible and we choose to delete all files dated before 2011 will we be able to restore them at a later time? We have already saved the files to a disk drive but are hoping we can archive or just want to make sure that we would be able to re import the files back into quick books if needed for any reason at a later time.

If you are using online, you don't have to delete anything. They will always be there for you.
