English term or phrase:bread-crumb trail
The second half of the equation is knowing the business value of any piece of data. The majority of information reaches the end of its useful life after a finite period. Deleting data as soon as possible eliminates the possibility of exposure and minimizes expensive searches.
However, some files--archives of advertising materials and annual reports, for example--have value for an extended period of time beyond normal business processes. Data in a permanent archive need not--and often should not--be easily accessible by users. Leave a metadata bread-crumb trail so an archivist can determine what needs to be retrieved from offline storage.
