    How-To use a Command Line tool as Source in LimagitoX File Mover

    In this how-to we’ll explain you how-to use a command line tool, aka CMD, as source in LimagitoX File Mover.

    First you need to add a CMD as Source:


    The following screenshot shows the CMD setup. In this example we’ll trigger a Ping from the Command Line. The result of the ping is stored in a text file. In this example we’re using a couple of parameters:

    %DFD = Destination File Directory

    %TCD:mmddyyyy-hhnnss: = Time Current Date format YearMonthDay-HourmiNuteSeconds

    cmd /c ping > %DFD\PingCheck.%TCD:mmddyyyy-hhnnss:.txt

    The Destination Directory of the Command result is set to: C:\Test\In\CMD\In\


    We selected ‘Move’ as function, so files created in the previous CMD Destination Directory will be Moved to its final Destination.

    We added a WIN local folder as Final Destination.

    Result in RuntTime Log:

    Content of ping command result text file:

    Q&A 8: Delete old files without deleting folders in Limagitox File Mover

    Q: I’m setting up a new rule to delete old files in a folder tree.  Easy to filter for files of a certain age (10 days old), but I’m concerned that folders would end up being deleted too.  Don’t see a way to tell the program not to touch the folders.

    A: As default we do not not delete folders. Only when you tell us to delete empty folders so be sure to disable the red marked option.

    Dir Filter Setup: be sure ‘Delete Empty Subdirectories’ is unchecked.



    If you need help, please let us know.
