 Posted: Thu Feb 09, 2006 4:14 am    Post subject: 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

 Posted: Mon Dec 08, 2008 6:44 am    Post subject: Exclude all the folders with the name "Temp" 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.

 Posted: Fri Dec 12, 2008 5:09 am    Post subject: 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.

 Posted: Tue Jul 20, 2010 2:41 am    Post subject: 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.
