When the car was invented, the concept of “automobile” with the Greek autòs (“self, personal, own”) and the Latin mobilis (“mobile”) emphasized the “self-mobile”.

With the next stage of evolution – autonomous driving – reliable self-movement is possible for the first time without intervention by a human being.
When it comes to archiving, the evolutionary stages can be drawn in the same way: absolute dependence on people (organization of paper files), multiple dependence on people (organization of digitized files) and now people are on the way to real self-archiving – i.e. intelligent, independent archiving of documents.
