Unable to purge savesets since closing and re-opening partition

We have automatic partition rollover, using safety copies after backup feature, using ignoretriggerbitfile. We are running Exchange 2010 SP1 and EV 9.0.2. I manually closed one partition and opened next one. I noticed partition 1 still had room to grow, so I went back and set it back to open. Since this, the savesets won't clear. Ideas on how to get it running again?

  • Have you tried to just restart the storage service?

    Sometime, it "hangs" and needs to restart, have seen this before.

  • When you say 'savesets' do you mean the safety copies?

    Since you're using a trigger file, I'm assuming you change your post-backup script to update the ignorearchivebittrigger.txt file in the new partition when you open it.  When you re-opened the old partition, did you modify the post-backup script to update the trigger file in the the current open partition?
