Even if you do not want to use the archive pages WordPress automatically generates for your posts – e.g. you don’t want to have an author based archive page on a single author blog or you don’t want to have a daily archive because you don’t post several times a day – they exist and they can be accessed by their automated generated URL.
The smart Archive Page Remove Plugin allows you to completely remove all the archive pages you do not need. Removed Archive Pages are no longer accessible and cause a 404 page not found error. They can be restored anytime.
