You should have a copy of anything you have ever sent to or received from any immigration-related agency.

You should maintain all of your immigration records in a safe place. I recommend saving documents electronically and in hard copy. That would include, all applications you have filed, receipt notices, requests for evidence, court orders, approval notices, etc.
