FSA archiving task aborts when the task contains illegal characters

Problem

FSA archiving task aborts when the task contains illegal characters

Cause

When doing a run now in report mode for the FSA [File System Archiving] archiving task no report is generated and nothing is logged in the event log.

A run now in normal mode will not archive anything and will not have any events in the log.

A Dtrace of the EVFsaArchivingTask process of the FSA archive task will reveal the following line "Exception: Illegal characters in path."  Below is a sample of a Dtrace with the error highlighted in bold:-

(EvFsaArchivingTask) <1500> EV-H{FILESYSTEMARCHIVINGCHECKPOINT.EN_US} Start reading the checkpoint file named .\FSATaskCheckPoint\File System Archiving Task ("H" Users Drive)_BDS Marketing_ReportRunNow.xml
(EvFsaArchivingTask) <1500> EV-H{FILESYSTEMARCHIVINGCHECKPOINT.EN_US} Exception: Illegal characters in path.
