Which one is better between Delete and Disable?

Deleting your account means all your information, along with documents and images, will be deleted forever. So, you cannot take them back even if you want to. So, it is a non-reversible process.

On the other hand, disabling an account means no one can access your account or send messages. But it will be deleted after 2 years if not used within this time period. So, you get 2 years to decide whether you need the account.

Objectively speaking, disabling an account is much better than deleting it. No one can say when you need the account or anything related to that account. So, even if you need anything important and disabled the account by mistake, you can take it back quite easily.

You only need to log back in using your email and password, and the account will be enabled. Pretty simple indeed.
