EV 10.0.4 FSA, Archiving but not creating placeholders


I am testing E-vault 10.0.4 File Server Archiving,

i am able to archive but placeholders are not created on all the files.

Note: archived with policy set to archive all, Remove safety copies: Immediately after archive, back up is enabled, Share with full control


As you can see, its only "streams" that gets archived, Sometimes "Eula" gets archived at other times it doesnt.

I dont seem to know what the issue is, kindly assist urgently.

What's your shortcut creation settings under the FSA archiving policy? Open your FSA volume/folder policy > archiving rules > select the rule under the list > click on Edit and then the Shortcut Creation tab. Make sure you have 'Create shortcut immediately'.
