We have ArcSDE 10.0 on MSSQL 2008 with Geodatabase archiving enabled. In the process of updating a topology I deleted the topology, disabled archiving, unregistered as versioned and then recreated the topology.
It seems that when I did this a copy of the feature classes in the feature dataset were created at the root of the geodatabase suffixed with an "_H". When I deleted and created the topology again the features classes were copied to the root of the gdb again with an "_H1" suffixed.
Does anyone know what's going on? I was told these were the Archiving tables. Please provide links if available.
