Profile Properties - Folder FiltersFolder filters enable you to filter specific folders during a copy operation, i.e. exclude them from the copy operation. The filtering methods inclusive and exclusive enable you to determine how filter texts are to be applied during a copy operation. In the copy modes 1:1 copy, Update and User-defined, the filters only affect the contents of the source folders.
Note: This profile property isn't available unless Expert Mode is activated.
InclusiveOnly folders matching an activated filter text are included during a copy operation. Example: If you specify the filter text "Test" only folders named 'Test' are searched during a copy operation. All other folders are filtered (= excluded) from the copy operation.
ExclusiveAll the folders matching a filter text are excluded from the copy operation. Example: If you specify the filter text "Test", all folders named 'Test' and their subfolders are filtered, i.e. excluded from the copy operation.
Note: The filtering methods inclusive and exclusive don't have any effect on a copy operation unless at least one filter text has been activated in the filter list.
Filter ListThe filter list contains all of the filter texts set up for folders. Each filter text can be enabled or disabled for a copy operation via its checkbox.
The following buttons are available for the filter list:
- Add – Add one filter text per selected folder
- Enter Text – Add one filter text per text entry
- Edit – Edit filter text
- Remove – Remove filter text
- Filter Wizard – Start Filter Wizard
- Remove All - Causes all filter texts to be removed from the list
Filter TextsComparisons using a filter text are always done using the folder name. When a filter text contains a backslash (\) comparison is made with the entire path of the current folder. Filters are not case-sensitive, meaning no distinction is made between uppercasing and lowercasing when performing comparisons.
The filter text may contain various wildcards and Windows environment variables. Examples:
