When using the FSAutility to move the placeholders, the utility cannot find any archive item that can migrated

We are presently trying to move place holders from out old file server to a new one but are experiencing this problem

I can see all the placeholders and open them successfully on the old file server but the FSA utility cannot find them

I have also found a problem that I think might be related with archive explorer as some of the archives can be seen but there is lots missing

When I browse the old fileserver I can see all the placeholders in the comms folder, but when I browse the folder in archive explorer I cannot see the majority of placeholder files in this folder

Can anybody help please? using EV

Hi there,

Have you considered restoring the files and then copy them to the new server and archive again?

WBR, Virgil
