Split by Attributes creates no Shapefiles

I want to create for each polygon of a shapefile a separate shapefile with the "Split by Attributes" tool. Input is a polygon shapefile and as split field I choose the ID. This tool works fine but in the results I cant find any shapefile, only .dbf , .dbf.xml and .cpg. But why is there no .shp?

As output I tried a workspace and a geodatabase, both didn't worked.

Your target workspace appears to be a file geodatabase, which means your output will be feature classes. Open the Target GDB in Catalog/ArcMap and you will see the split attributes as single Feature Classes.

The documentation for the tool states the outputs are either feature classes or tables
