Action source parameters

Allows to adjust file filter from source folder for action execution.

Action source parameters

You can filter files by five criteria:

  1. By filename.
    Match files by name
    Contains following elements:
    1. Include mask. It contains filename masks, those must be used in an action. Pop up list keeps masks entered before in a chronological order. By pressing on the button you launch pop up menu, where you can select needed mask type.
    2. Exclude mask. It contains filename masks, those must not be used in an action. Pop up list keeps masks entered before in a chronological order. By pressing on the button you launch pop up menu, where you can select needed mask type.
    3. By checking on this box you include all subfolders beginning from source folder.

    Files are filtered by this criterion in the following way: if a filename was included in every include mask and not included in all exclude mask it will be processed during the action. Masks may affect on relative paths too. For example, include mask "Folder\*.doc" will pick out files with .doc extension only in Folder subfolder related to the source folder. Single masks may be separated with semicolon or space. If a mask contains space in its name it must be enclose in double inverted commas.

    Current criterion is always affect. If you do not need to fitter files by name you must leave the include and exclude mask fields blank.

  2. By text in file.
    Include files containing text string
    Contains following elements:
    1. Search text. Depending on boxes checked on it may be a string (in some encoding) or a hex-symbols sequence. Pop up list keeps masks entered before in a chronological order.
    2. Search options :
      • Whole words - search for whole words only. It means that entered text may appear in a file only inside the separator symbols (spaces, dots etc.)
      • Case sensitive - small and capital letters are different when this box is checked on.
      • ASCII charset - entered text must be converted to OEM-encoding before search.
      • Hex - search field must contain even number of hex-symbols (symbols range 0..9 and A..F), those are define the byte sequence in a file
      • Unicode - entered text must be converted to Unicode-encoding before search.
      • Exclude text - entered text must not contained in a file.

      Only the one of the boxes ASCII charset, Hex Unicode can be checked simultaneously.

    This criterion affects only when it is activated. To activated it check on the box in the header.

  3. By date.
    Match files by date/time
    There two ways to filter files by date:
    1. File date must be fit into the date interval. You need to define the start and the finish date for an interval (These dates are also included.)
    2. File must not be older that some time interval from the current date. Interval is defined with a number from 1 to 9999 and time unit selected For example, if you set up 1 day interval program will pick out files those were changed during last 24 hours.

    This criterion affects only when it is activated. To activated it check on the box in the header.

  4. By file size.
    Match files by size
    Allows to filter files by size. Contains following elements:
    1. File check condition. You may select between "equal", "more" and "less"
    2. Number to compared with.
    3. Unit of measurement

    If you've selected "less", "100", KByte program will pick out all files those size not exceeds 100 Kbytes.

    This criterion affects only when it is activated. To activated it check on the box in the header.

  5. By file attributes.
    Match files by attributes

    Filter files by file attributes: Archive, Read-only, Hidden System. There are three variants.

    Attribute must be present in the file.
    Attribute must be absent in the file.
    Attribute does not affect

    Boxes may differ in various OS

    This criterion affects only when it is activated. To activated it check on the box in the header.
