    Backup source file only when copy or move to destination is successful

    Q: Backup source file only when copy or move to destination is successful. At this moment we are using the Backup option to create a backup of the source file. This is working fine but it seems to create a backup before the file is copied or moved to its destination. So when the destination fails due to some reason then the file still will be available in the backup folder. This is something we don’t want. It should only create a backup when copy or move to destination is successful.

    A: Yes this is possible but you need to do this a bit differently.

    1. Disable the Backup option you are using at this moment:
    2. Add an extra WIN Destination (must be the last one). This WIN Destination will be your Backup.
    3. One more step is to select ‘Exit Cyclus on Error’ in the function setup.
    So when the first Destination fails, it will exit and not copy the file to the second WIN Destination, which is your Backup.

    Microsoft Defender Antivirus Command-Line tool before moving a file

    Q: I would like to use an Antivirus Command-Line tool before moving a file to its Destination. Can you recommend an antivirus scanner that your software can call and scan the file before transmitting?
    A: Since Microsoft Defender Antivirus is installed on latest OS versions we decided to use the command-line version ( mpcmdrun.exe ) of this AV.

    We are using a 64bit Windows 10 and installed the 64bit version of our Limagito File Mover. In this case the 64bit version of our File Mover is a must because the AV Command-Line tool is also 64bit. It will not work otherwise.

    • In the following example the Source is a Windows folder (WIN). Our goal is to transmit some pdf files to an AWSS3 Destination. Before sending the files we want to scan them using the command-line version of Microsoft Defender Antivirus.

    Limagito File Mover Windows folder as Source

    • Open the ‘Function’ setup, important here is that ‘Exit Cyclus on Error’ is selected.

    • Now we are going to add our Destinations. The first Destination must be CMD (Command), the second Destination is where the source file will be moved to if it isn’t infected by a virus.

    Limagito File Mover Destination setup

    • CMD (Command) Setup as First Destination:

    CMD /C ” “%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe” -Scan -ScanType 3 -File “%SFP%SFN” “

    When the AV scan is successful the ExitCode will be 0. All other values will be treaded as an error and will result in the source file not being moved to the second destination due to the ‘Exit Cyclus on Error’ selection in the Function setup.

    • The second destination is where the source file will be moved to if it isn’t infected by a virus. You can choose this yourself. In our case it is AWSS3.
    • In case the AV returns an error (CMD ExitCode <> 0) then the file will not be moved to its second destination. Now you can add an ‘On Error’ Rule event to warn you.

    Exclude some subfolders and the subfolders of the excluded subfolder

    Q: Exclude subfolders and the subfolders of the excluded subfolder. I’m connecting to a FTP site, looking through the folders for any files older than 28 days but I want to exclude some sub-folders and the sub-folders of the excluded folder.

    My current ‘Directory Filter’ setup doesn’t seem to work:

    Limagito File Mover Directory Filter Setup

    My current ‘Dir Name’ Exclude filter:

    Limagito File Mover Directory name exclude filter

    I also changed the Directory Filter Setup – Advanced – Exclude Complete Invalid SubDirs hoping it would skip the sub folders of the GRAPHICS PURGE folder.

    Limagito Team: “Reason, SubDir Search Mode (WIN) is for WIN as source only”

    Limagito File Mover Directory Filter setup

    But in the log file we see the ‘GRAPHICS PURGE’ folder and its subfolder BUL are not being excluded.

     

    Limagito Team:

    It is possible to achieve this but you’ll need to add some extra ‘Dir Name Exclude’ Filters, leave the ones you already had.

    GRAPHICS PURGE
    */GRAPHICS PURGE/*
    Ads
    */Ads/*
    PDF
    */PDF/*
