An AfterMath archive is a single, individual data file stored on your hard drive (in a place that you get to choose).  Within that archive resides a collection of related experimental results, specifications, notes, and plots organized in a manner of your own choosing.  The capacity of any given archive file is theoretically infinite, but keep in mind that an archive is not meant to be treated as a huge monolithic database (i.e., it isn't a LIMS).
 
We don't recommend that you attempt to cram an entire five years' worth of graduate level research results into a single archive file.  Rather, an archive file might be used to hold all the data from about twenty to eighty related experiments.  If you allow the file to grow too large, the performance of the AfterMath application will suffer when you are saving or loading your archive to or from the hard drive.
