Can I copy the data from an Archive to another PI without using PI to PI? Just picking up the Data Archives and putting it in?
Data in archives are strongly linked to configuration files on a given PI Data Archive and won't be able to be properly read by another Data Archive without those configuration files.
Unless you're planning on restoring an *exact copy* of a Data Archive onto another machine, then I would recommend using the PI to PI interface to transfer data from one Data Archive to another.
Could you share your objective? Is this a one-time thing or is it something that you will do frequently?
There are other ways to do it without using PI to PI that maybe suites your needs...
