During a policy run, the Standard Policy engine records information about any file that should move but fails to move. A file should move if it meets all of the filter options in a policy. Reasons that a file might fail to move during a policy run include the following:
The source file is open and in use.
Free space on the target disk is insufficient for the file size.
A file with the same file name is present in the same folder on the target location.
The source location or the target location of a file move becomes unavailable.
The Dynamic File Services Storage Rights group or NDFS-servername proxy user has insufficient permissions on the remote share or file system in a pair.
Exceptions caused by timing issues with the Windows file system.
When policies are run at the same time, the policies are grouped and run together by direction:and . Statistics about the files that failed to move are aggregated based on the two direction categories, and not by the individual policies in the same run.
Therun history statistics for a policy run lists the files that failed to move in a given direction. For each file, the Run History report includes the full path of the file name, the file extension, the file size, and a comment for any error messages.
A file can appear to fail to move if you schedule policies to run at the same time that move files in opposite directions. If the file is not listed in the Section 13.3, Viewing a Policy Run History of Files Moved.run history, look for it in the run histories for the and statistics for the policy run as described in
