    2. Delete oldest archive repository entry.
    3. Shuffle archive repository entries by renaming or moving each archive repository entry to be age +1.
    4. Create new archive repository entry for new archiving with age 0.
    5. Create archive repository entry lock file in the first archiving repository entry.
