Profile Properties - File FiltersFile filters enable you to filter specific files 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 files matching an activated filter text are included in the copy operation. Example: If you specify the filter text "*.ini" only files with the ".ini" extension are processed during a copy operation. All other files are filtered (= excluded) from the copy operation.
ExclusiveAll the files matching a filter text are excluded from the copy operation. Example: If you specify the filter text "*.ini", all files with the ".ini" extension 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 files. Each filter text can be enabled or disabled via its checkbox.
The following buttons are available for the filter list:
- Add – Add one filter text per selected file
- Enter Text – Add one filter text per text entry
- Edit – Edit filter text
- Remove – Remove filter text
- Remove All - Causes all filter texts to be removed from the list
Filter TextsComparisons using the filter text are always done using the file name. When a filter text contains a backslash (\) comparison is made with the entire path of the current file. 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:
