I cannot un-archive boards due to team having max amount of boards. Edited

As a small design studio based in a third world country, we cannot afford the business package and always archived our artwork with the boards. I cannot access the archive anymore because the team the boards belong to, are full. Can the archived boards not be set to "private" so I can access my archive? I am in quite a panic I have lost access to our work!

@Suzan McCreadie My company was in the same boat (previously set up a board per project). When the free tier changed, we had to completely re-vamp our system in order to maintain access for those that needed it. Our team has about 20 users and only 4 that would benefit from jumping to Business. 

We modified a current board to better suit the free "restrictions" and actually now have a much smoother setup. It took us awhile to do and we're still tweaking commands and procedures.

Instead of using a board for each project, we now have centralized lists for the type of work/step needed and utilize labels for each project. We're able to see everything on one board - then filter if we need to trim it down to look at one project. We also utilize Butler to move cards once they're done to an "archive" board (so we can look back if needed).

You could move the board out of that team to a different team? or to your personal team?  But you would have to archive another board to make space first in order to do that (so that you could unarchive the board and move it).

The problem is that the team it was part of has 50 boards over, with 19 different guests and team members, all connected. So it means I would have to completely disassemble my whole system just to be able to un-archive a board and switch it to no team...
