It means that the SFC was archived. I believe you just archived Shop Order and its SFCs. So, may find your SO and SFCs in archive database. Moreover you can restore them with Archive/Unarchive activity.

As Alex says - It looks like the order was archived and not deleted.
Check the Background processing txn to see if this is happening automatically or whether someone did it manually.
If you do not want people to archive manually you can have access to the txn restricted in user group maintenence
In midst of panic we found the Shop Order. The archive was done automatically. Since usually the Pilot orders had failures they did not get archived, this on the other hand was an exception and was finished perfectly thus it got automatically archived.
Thanks for help.
With referance to your thread we did few test and tried to delete few shop-orders from our setup.
1. If there are SFC existing in shoporder then it is not possible to delete the same through Shop order manintenance. It gives error message as "Cannot delete a shop order with existing SFCs (Message 13078)"
2. In any case once the shoporder is released it is not possible to delete the same from shop-order maintenance.
3. Unreleased shoporder can be deleted from shop-order maintenance.
This is just for information so we can refere this in future.
