Here is a complete list of where to find all the archive entries in the game. For the most part, 9S will be the one collecting most of these in Route B by hacking locked chests. A few others are unlocked in Route C while playing as A2 as well, while some will come from completing sidequests.


The one tip I can give for tracking down treasure chests is to buy the ever-useful Item Scan plugin chip from the Resistance Camp Supply Trader at the beginning of Route B. This should mark the locations of any unopened treasure chests on your minimap. Achieve 80% completion percentage to unlock the Information Master trophy.
