I've been testing EV8 SP5 FSA and although I've tried a multitude of policies and settings I can't seem to get it to archive files from the target or leave placeholders.
I'm not getting any errors in the event log, with the only two messages appearing after I manually "Run Now" are 40983 and 40987. The latter messsage indicates that several files matched.
Being very new to EV, where a good place to start looking?
As additional information: Depending on your settings in on the vault store (right click/properties | General) you can decide if EV should wait for cleard archive bits before creating the placeholders.
