Is it possible to archive a selected set of completed surveys in such a way that they could be reimported at a future date?

What do you mean by "archive"? How would that be different from the current export/import process?

Cheers,

Maybe I can already do what I want then? I need to select a large number of completed surveys and export them, then at some point I might need to reimport them. I need to do this because my server is starting to slow down under the weight of so much data.

See "Export survey archive (.lsa)" in the manual - manual.limesurvey.org/Exporting_a_survey...y_archive_.28.lsa.29

I can see this for single surveys but what about doing it in bulk? I have several hundred to go through, it would be painful to do them one by one.

Is the export lsa function exposed in the remote control API?

Not according to the manual - manual.limesurvey.org/RemoteControl_2_API

Actually it would not be too hard implementing this - just a matter of time (and money). Would you be interested to donate towards this?

Best regards
