Q&A 39: Is it possible to setup a wildcard config for source directories?

Q: I was curious if it is possible to setup a wildcard config for source directories.  In this example, folders with media are created every January 1st.  I like the source path to be something like \\MyServer\MyShare\media\202*  , essentially only looking for folders with a year of 2020 or greater.

A: Yes this is possible. Could you please try:

– Setup WIN as Source folder. Directory: \\MyServer\MyShare\media\

(ignore the red text, it’s just an example)

– Add the following Directory Filter Setup:
We’ll exclude files in the base folder (\\MyServer\MyShare\media\)

We added a Subdirectory Include Name Filter:

Important, we’ll also exclude subfolders of invalid Subdirectories.
