Error description

  • The file space saving estimation of HSM for Windows GUI,
    dsmgui.exe, counts filtered out files incorrectly as stub files.
    Files being normally filtered out by HSM migration jobs are
    hidden and system files and files being smaller than or equal to
    the NTFS file systems cluster size. The file space saving
    estimation dialog of the HSM for Windows GUI counts too few
    files and too many stub files in its group box "Disk usage after
    migration". Additionally it counts same files as files selected
    for migration in the group box "Free disk space gain". The wrong
    counts cause inexact estimation numbers presented to the HSM
    user. No other problems or side effects occur for any other HSM
    functionality.
    The related APAR IC81301 GUI ALWAYS DISPLAYS A STUB FILE COUNT
    OF ZERO did not solve this issue.
    
    Affected Products: HSM for Windows 6.3.0.1
