To your question how to use ADK for archiving... just try a search in SDN, there are some nice articles from SDNers which explain step by step on BI Archiving.

hope this helps,

->Preferable method will be as per your requirement if there is a already existing connection with SAP system such as UNIX you can go for ADK, it is very easy and simple, if you don't have any such system then you can store the data in the third party tool using the nearline storage.

-> Expected time will depend on your server and availability, you can always schedule a background job using ADK.

For us it has taken approx 1 hr for 1 million data records.
