Storing an Alienware Aurora R4 for a long time

I built a new computer recently, the first one after 20 years of buying prebuilt pc's. I intend to keep my Aurora R4 and to store it somewhere safe.

I already removed the batteries and stored it in its original packaging. Is there something else I should remove like the mainboard battery or maybe the AIO?

Batteries should be removed.  New unused CR2032 batteries can be stored for 10 years.  SSD drives De trap after a  long period of time.

Hard drives can be stored for decades in a cool dry place and retain data.

Should wrap in a trash bag to keep dust out.
