Delete a record or just flag as inactive?

Just a rookie question - I have a client with an inventory file and other files that go all the way back to 1995.  The question is whether it's better as a general philosophy to delete records that no longer are meaningful or just flag them as inactive.

 

My thinking is that it's better to flag records as inactive and then modify reports to only pick up active records and create some new reports that only select inactive.

 

You thoughts on the general approach are appreciated.
