Is there any way I can filter a group of directories that begin with a '_' in one statement instead of listing each directory

Hello,

Is there way to put a mask so I can filter by the date?, I mean, we have a repository where every day we move certain quantity of folders containing a lot of files each one, and when the process that generates them finish we need to run a second one before start to transfer them with all their contents to a definitive repository. Since this is done in a dayly basis we have been able to create a folder with the current date as name (eg. "07-02-2006") and in this way we would handle it to transfer its contents only selecting the corresponding folder to the today's previous day.

In other words what I generate on monday it will be transfered to a definitive repository until thuesday, what we generate on thuesday we will transfer it until wednesday and so on.

Notes: we need the most possible automated process for this task and I don't know how to make to work two profiles using VVLaucher as a service

I hope I explained myself.

Thanks

Did you check the Date/Size File Filters in VV PRO 2 ? See Profile Settings, File Filter section, then click on Date/Size File Filters ... do they help with your scenario?

Hi,

For archiving there is no specific option to filter folders. though I might need this.

let say I use VV to backup a drive: (dSmile And I want to keep a backup archive.
BUT... the subfolder (d:\servers\logs\) and all it's subfolders do need to be backuped but not archived...

What would the filter for this look like....

Try using this archive file filter:

d:\servers\logs\*

There are no subfolder filters for the archive function because subfolders are not archived (only if a file in a subfolder is archived then the corresponding folder is created)

thanks

How can i execlude all the folders with a specific name "Temp"? They resides at different location in the source directory like "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\webiste\temp" or "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\webiste\content\temp". These folders gets generated at run time inside the website (which is source folder) at any lavel so i cannot predict their exact location.

No. It didnot work. Please give me the exact syntax. More information is below:

Source: \\?\c:\intetpub\wwwroot\website\
Target: \\?\UNC\server\website\

The folder "Temp" can exists at various locations inside the website folder. Some of the examples are:

\\?\c:\intetpub\wwwroot\website\temp
\\?\c:\intetpub\wwwroot\website\content\temp
\\?\c:\intetpub\wwwroot\website\content\files\temp
\\?\c:\intetpub\wwwroot\website\user\temp


Now what the exact filter i need to enter in "Sub-folders" filter? I tried with \temp\ but no luck.

Sorry, try this one "temp\" (without ")
"\temp\" would exclude only \\?\c:\intetpub\wwwroot\website\temp

thanks

How can I filter a folder which contains a certain file. Is that possible? So, I would need conditional filterin...if (certain file is here) then "copy the folder."

Basically I if I find a file named "*report*" I want the whole set of files in that folder to be copied to a certain location. With other profiles I would copy the other folders to other locations as needed based on one of the file's names (some of the other files might have the same name so I cannot filter by file, and the subfolders have all same name).

Thanks for your help.
