When archiving with a "all documents not access in" or "not modified since" selection the calendar profile document seems to get archived too. Hence a nice user now becomes irrate user due to their signature, mail and view customizations disappearing.
Now, this maybe to the letter of the law but this is not what users expect. Please exempt  the calendar profile from all archiving by default.

I don't use archiving but if it is the case that config documents get deleted from the db then I agree that it should be changed so this doesn't happen

I agree policy documents should be ignored, but if you're having trouble with this now - try refining your policy to archive documents 'In views or folders' in the archive criteria settings policy document. Select the folders/views from which you want to archive.
In general, policy documents don't appear in any of these available views so they should be safe.

Thanks Nathan, already done that ;)

That works, but it is a work around.

Which version did you run into this one?

There's a current 'feature' in 8.0.2 where archiving also archives contacts

profile documens should be excluded from archiving that's why they contain fields like $NoPurge and ProtectFromArchive, it seems that current archiving code ignores these fields.
