Issue
When Archive Shuttle performs the EV Collection process, metadata about all items is collected and stored in the Item Database.  The Archive Shuttle Core then performs any requested filtering, eg filtering based on age or size.  This article explains what happens if the size filter is later changed.
Solution
As stated above, the first thing that happens is that the EV Collector will collect metadata about all items in the archive, the Archive Shuttle Core then performs the filtering.  The routed, exported, and imported statistics then follow that and show only the filtered count.
For example if there are 10 items less than 1 Mb in size, and 10 items which are 5 Mb in size, and a filter is used to restrict the migration to items less than 2 Mb, initially 20 items will be collected, 10 items will be routed (exported, and imported).
Item Collection and routing happens by default on all mappings every 24 hours from when it was last run.
During that time if the size filter is changed to a different figure, item collection will first of all get any delta, and, the Archive Shuttle Core will process all items based on the new filter.
Following on from the previous example if the filter is changed to migrate everything less than 10 Mb in size, the EV Collector may collect additional items, Archive Shuttle Core will apply this newly updated filter to all collected items (including ones collected on previous days). In this case it would see that 10 additional items are now eligible for migration, and it will queue them for export (and subsequent import).
 
In detail the following was observed during testing with Archive Shuttle 6.6:

The EV Collector doesn’t apply the filter, the Core does. The collector gets ‘everything’.
In the EV Export Module log file:

So here you can see that 10 items were exported.

The Stage 1 screen shows 10 items exported, and 10 items imported.
The filter was then updated, and 24 hours allowed to pass. Note: If Item Gathering is run after changing the filter, then the activities described below will happen immediately.
The EV Collector checked for a delta:

The date based part of the collection can mean that additional items are found, or not. It’s environment and data dependent.
Shortly afterwards the export module logged:

2015-03-12 14:14:20Z|3760| 4| INFO| Get| -> Got 1 commands
2015-03-12 14:14:20Z|3760| 22| INFO| DoExport|Start Work for size2. Export Command contains 10 Items

2015-03-12 14:14:29Z|3760| 31| INFO| Get|Querying Core for 10 Commands (Backlog: 0)

And then the import module ingested them:

The Stage 1 screen shows 20 items exported, and 20 items imported.
