FSA not archiving

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?

So do a run now and for reports make sure it is set to Full and not Brief.  Post a few lines of that report.

More info

Figured out why it wasn't working.  I needed to clear the archive attribute on the files in the EV store before it would delete the original file and leave the placeholder.

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.
