In this paper we address some challenges in the development of personal archives. Personal archives can be seen as a collection of archival holdings connected to one specific individual during its lifetime. The collection can be the result of personal activities in private life or part of activities in within an organisation. In order to develop easy-to-use and low-cost archival services for individuals, any company need to carry out a pre-scanning over the challenges that the company may confront during development. Some of the challenges we could identify in advance where connected to the following areas: Characteristics of personal archiving services, the user, underlying technical infrastructure, portability, security, pricing and the market itself.
