“Archivable” or “archiveable”

I have an entity and I would like to describe it as being able to be archived.

Is it archivable, archiveable? The former seems OK for me, but I could find no wiktionary.org results.

Answer

Archivable is correct. -e more often than not drops off when adding -able (it varies a lot, mostly based on whether the word looks better with or without the e; I wouldn’t say this is a case that greatly calls for keeping it, and the Google stats tend to indicate others agree).
