Dilbert has the answer. If not, it's well worth contemplating.

Hi fellow tech writers,

I'm interested in knowing for how long outdated copies of technical
documentation should be saved (e.g., in company archives). We currently keep
one copy of each book in the archives, and we never throw any out.

(Has anyone ever had to actually access an outdated version?)
