Done with a Folder or List but want to access tasks and files later? 

Archiving a Folder or List removes it from view, but does not delete any tasks that are contained within. You can still search for archived tasks and show hidden Folders and Lists in the sidebar.

Unless you truly want to permanently delete tasks within the Folder or List, you should pretty much always use the archive option.
