If manually running Storage Expiry then the following can be used as a workaround.
Set Process Vault Stores to Selected times in the site properties.
1. Right-click on the EV Site name and choose Properties.
2. Click on the Storage Expiry tab.
3. Set Process Vault Stores to Selected times.
NOTE: It is not necessary to select any times for Storage Expiry to process the vault stores. This will still require that it be run manually using Run Now, but it will allow for the deletion to process fully during the running of the task.
4. Click OK and restart the EV Admin Service.
5. Run the archive task manually or allow it to process the shortcuts during the next scheduled archive run.
These steps should allow the shortcuts that were orphaned by Storage Expiry to be removed properly.
