In RTC source control we have Back up and Delete stream

I understand that it doesn’t exist other possibility as to archive.

For instance, in ClearCase we have two options: Lock and Obsolete (this options locks and hides)

Is Is there similar facility in RTC source control tool? If it is yes, let me know how can we achieve it?

In recent versions of RTC, you now have the option to "Lock" a stream.
In addition, if you want to "hide" a stream, you can modify its visibility ... for example, by setting its visibility to an Access Group that has limited or no members.

In particular, I do not believe this functionality is available in 4.0.1 or 5.0.2.

In RTC 6.0.2 we added a feature that lets you lock streams and components to prevent deliveries to the files in those streams or components. When a stream or component is locked, any attempted deliveries by users who do not own the lock will fail with an appropriate error message. The user that holds the lock can still perform deliveries to the stream. A lock does not only prevent deliveries, it also prevents any operation that affects the files in the locked component or stream. For example, a component replace is also prevented.
