FileMove Standard Edition 2.5
How can I
minimize the risk to delete or move important system files of the
Window operating system?The files will be left on their original
place. Use this mode to test a new job and check the files which have been
copied. Be carefully with the option 'existing files in destination
folder'. Be sure that the option 'delete source' is not checked otherwise
the source files will be deleted if some files are already existing in the
destination folder. While running the delete files mode the files can be
moved to the trash bin and can be restored if necessarily. If the settings
for the trash bin size is big enough then all the deleted files are there.
Another good idea is to check the boxes for the file attributes to exclude
hidden, system and read only files. Remember, using the file extension
criteria is a good way to avoid moving system or other files.
Yes. You can put mapped network drives under a drive name or network
devices (e.g. \\Workstation\Media (G)\Mp3) into the source path or the
the job in the job window and then do a right click to open the popup
menu. If the job is deactivated then activate the job first then run

Select the source
folder where the file should be or a top folder of the directory tree
where you expect the file. Then use the field file name to enter the file
name. In the extension field enter the file extension. If you do not
exactly know where the file is and you search in a folder structure then
use the other criteria to define the expected file as close as possible.
In this case more then one file with the same name and extension can be
found. If the source folder is known then the file is unique in the
Can I move or
copy files first into one folder and then use an other job to get
these files and copy or move them elsewhere? Yes. If you have
different jobs with the same intervals then the jobs will be executed in
alphabetical order. If job A moves files to a place then job B will find
the files on this place for further handling. With this method whole
directory trees can be sorted out. If the jobs are not in alphabetical
order then use an increasing interval order. The job with an interval of 1
minute will move files then a job with the interval of 2 minutes will find
the files. The next job with the interval of 3 minutes can handle the
files further. This gives a lot of possibilities for file distribution or
collection in a network.
I would like to
copy a catalog of the covers of my mp3 collection. How do I do this?
The covers of a mp3 collection are rarely named as the album. Therefore it
is recommended to keep the folder structure in the job edit window. first
select the source and the destination folder then enter the extensions for
pictures in to the file extension field [ gif, jpg, tif,
png ]. Leave the field for file names empty. Select 'no limit' for the
file size and 'all' for the 'creation date'. (Except you want to search
only the covers which have been added the last 30 days). Select 'No
action' for existing files in the destination folder. After execution of
this job the destination folder contains a folder structure with the
covers. If the mp3 collection was sorted and the folders named as usual
with the album and the artist the covers are in the album folders.
I get the message that the
destination disk is full, but it isn't. Why?
In a network with different operating systems, mostly on Linux or
similar, the program can not determine the space left on the disk. To
avoid this message and enable moving and copying check the box in the
settings window labeled 'No size checks for destination window'. If this
box is checked then the program will not check for disk space. In case of
a full disk the program shows a undefined error in the message window.
