Primary File Filter
Additional File Filter
This option defines Source properties for HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) pages and files.
Select a name of a pre-configured HTTP account from the drop down list. If there is none, or you need to create a new one, access HTTP account properties as described below.
Click the 'Edit' button to access the HTTP Accounts manager where you can create and configure your HTTP accounts. Detailed information about this can be found here.
Primary File Filter
Primary File Filter is the first among three filters that are available in AnyFileBackup. It is applied first, before any other filter. This filter distinguishes files by their origin (combination depends on the selected filter type):
|▪||'All': files of any origin are within task's scope. In other words, no filter is applied.|
|▪||'New': a file that has appeared in (created in, copied to, etc.) Source after the most recent Source snapshot is within task's scope. Note, that if a file has been renamed, it is also considered as 'new' even though no other changes have happened to this file.|
|▪||'Non-existent': a file that exists in Source but does not exist in Target is within task's scope. This is different from 'New' because Source might have remained unchanged, but certain files might have been deleted in Target. In this case these deleted files will be restored in Target by transferring them from Source.|
|▪||'Deleted': this is opposite to 'New'. A file that disappears (deleted, etc.) from Source is within task's scope and will also be deleted from Target. Note, that as with 'New', if a file has been renamed, it is also considered as 'deleted' even though no other changes have happened to this file.|
|▪||'Changed': a file whose parameters have changed is within task's scope. The relevant parameters are:|
|-||filename (not displayed and cannot be removed)|
Displays the name of selected filter. To select another filter click on the button at the end of the field and choose an appropriate filter.
Additional File Filter
Additional File Filter distinguishes files by mask.
The following operators and wildcards may be used:
|▪||* (asterix): means ANY number of ANY symbols|
|▪||? (question mark): means ANY SINGLE ONE symbol|
|▪||. (dot): means a delimiter which is normally used to separate a filename and a file extension|
|▪||; (semicolon): means a delimiter which is used to separate one file mask from another; no space is necessary either before or after it|
Combinations of the above are also allowed: see Example No.3 below.
The below examples describe a situation of a file being included. All these equally work in relation to files being excluded.
|▪||Included files: file*.docx (that means that any file that has its filename starting with a word 'file' and has a 'docx' extension will be included)|
|▪||Files that will be included: file-01-01-2012.docx, file120101.docx, file1Jan2012.docx|
|▪||Files that will NOT be included: file01.01.12.doc|
|▪||Included files: file??????.docx (that means that any file that has its filename starting with a word 'file', has a 'docx' extension and has any six symbols between a ford 'file' and a dot will be included)|
|▪||Files that will be included: file120101.docx|
|▪||Files that will NOT be included: file-01-01-2012.docx, file1Jan2012.docx, file01.01.12.doc|
|▪||file????2012.* : any file that has its filename starting with a word 'file', has any four symbols between a word 'file' and '2012' and has any extension will be included (note that if a file has neither an extension nor a dot after '2012' it will NOT be included because a dot ('.') symbol is an essential part of its filename).|
|▪||file*201?.* : any file that has its filename starting with a word 'file', has any number of symbols between a word 'file' and '201', ends with any one undefined symbol and has any extension will be included (note that if a file has neither an extension nor a dot after '201[ANY-SYMBOL]' it will NOT be included because a dot ('.') symbol is an essential part of its filename).|
|▪||file????2012.doc? : any file that has its filename starting with a word 'file', has any four symbols between a word 'file' and '2012' and has extension that starts with 'doc' with any single one symbol at the end (or even none at all, so 'file01012012.doc' is also covered) will be included.|
The name of a page or file on a website (Source). If the name is not specified, the default site document is returned by the website.
The name of a page or file in Target. Leave blank if you want to keep the original filename.
|▪||Notify if Source is inaccessible|
If AnyFileBackup cannot read the Source's content for whatever reason (e.g., Source does not exist, access to Source is blocked by a firewall policies, etc), AnyFileBackup can notify you about this error by e-mail.
Notification settings can be set up in 'Program Settings' > 'Error Handling'.
Press the 'Start' button to direct AnyFileBackup to immediately launch this action. This will verify whether all above settings were entered correctly; all errors, if any, will be displayed in a log window.
This is a custom name that will be displayed in the Task Scenario instead of the default title. Press the 'Apply' button for changes to take effect.
