Real time guard (external)

It is possible to run a real time guard outside of FileMove Pro. The guard runs in depended from the NT-Service and the main program. It is recommended to avoid multiple guard jobs monitoring the same directories. This can give unexpected results.

More information about the integrated real time guard is here.

Shows the name of the currently loaded job file.

Source folder

Destination folder

The selected mode as entered in the edit window.

Shows if the job can be executed or not. When errors occurring then the state label is in red color. This means mostly that one or more paths are incorrect. Paths can be edited by clicking on the edit button.

Real time monitoring of the file system
The directory for monitoring is either the source or the destination folder or any other directory. Insert a path if the 'other folder' option is selected.

This option allows to give the system time to complete actions before executing the job. The info window helps to configure the delay if big files are moved/copied or other large actions are done by the system.

The guard can watch different properties. Select the needed one. The default property is wait for file changes.
- Files = Modification of a file (delete, rename, create etc.)
- File sizes = Modification of the file size
- File times = Modification of the file time
- File attributes = Modification of file attributes
- Directory = Modifications of directories (delete, rename, create etc.)

Watch subfolders
For monitoring an entire folder tree use this setting. Unchecked the guard works only in the top level of the selected folder.
