Hi Patrick and Christine,
Did you find a resolution to this? I have the exact same issue and Support have not been able to resolve it yet. I am currently getting around this by using a batch file and Windows Task Scheduler to move the files to an archive folder before the Scheduled Prep flow on Server runs each night.
No I did not get this fixed at all. The help team said it was a problem at my end and would not look into it any further.
