You can use the File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) to categorize files and to select files for scheduled file management tasks.
Classification operations usually stop in one of two ways:
The classification operation completes successfully
The time allotted to classify files runs out
When classification stops for other reasons, this usually indicates that there are issues that should be addressed by a member of the Administrators group. If the classification process stopped prematurely, it will likely happen again in future classification operations, and it may prevent complete classification of the server.
Classification operations that stop prematurely are often caused by the following:
Corrupted files that cause a classification or storage module to fail
Mount points that refer to volumes that no longer exist
To fix this issue, you should begin by viewing the following articles and installing the associated updates. (To install updates, you must be a member of the Administrators group):

If the error persists, an administrator who is familiar with FCI should review the event logs for the cause of the stopped classification operation.
To access event logs to troubleshoot classification operations that have stopped prematurely:
1. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.
2. In the left pane, click Custom Views, click Server Roles, and then click File Server.
3. In the Source column, look for events with a source of SRMSVC or SRMREPORTS.
4. Click any events of interest and review the information on the General and Details tabs.
Verify that future classification operations will run successfully by running the operation that failed or waiting for the next scheduled classification.
To run a classification operation:
1. Click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click File Server Resource Manager.
2. In the left pane, double-click Classification Management, right-click Classification Rules, and then click Run Classification With All Rules Now.
