JOB: Looking for a ROCKSTAR UX Designer!

Musician's Friend is a musician's dream job.

Where else can you use your skills to excel at a career you love with friendly, dedicated co-workers who share a common bond? Music is what defines our lives here, and the attitudes and ambitions of our employees prove this.

It might sound a little corny, but at Musican's Friend we are in the business of making dreams come true – and everyone here, from the mail clerk to our legendary cowbell-playing CEO, takes that mission very seriously.

Any Best Practices for Number of Years documents should be available on a web site?

I'm trying to make some recommendations in order to clean up 15 years worth of documents on a web site. The files are mainly government meeting minutes in word format, which overall is taking up quite the chunk of space. I feel 7 or 8 years would be more then sufficient, but would like to have some best practices or examples to back up what I recommend.
Anyone know of any such documentation or have had to provide similar recommendations?
