Why are my log files filled with the message "Skipping backup because archive bit not set for file"?

This is primarily an informational message. In order to improve the troubleshooting of the Steelgate software in the long term, we have enhanced our logging to be much more detailed. You can control the detail level of the backup job logs by changing the Log Creation Options in the Steelgate software.
