    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\
    Limagito File Mover WIN as Source
    (ignore the red text, it’s just an example)
    Limagito File Mover WIN as Source Setup
    – Add the following Directory Filter Setup:
    We’ll exclude files in the base folder (\\MyServer\MyShare\media\)
    Limagito File Mover Directory Filter Setup
    We added a Subdirectory Include Name Filter:

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

    Feedback user: Thank you. This seems to work.

    Q&A 10: Can we remove empty directories in LimagitoX File Mover

    Q: Can we create a rule which will remove empty directories once a week, not every scan?
    A: Yes this is possible. Let’s start with a new rule. Source will be the Windows folder you want to scan. Trigger it once a week and add a dummy Pascal Script as destination. Some screenshots to get you started.

    1.- Setup the Schedule.

    Disable the Scan Timers because we are going to use the Scheduler option instead.

    LimagitoX-Schedule-Disable-Scan-Timers

    Swith from Timer to Scheduler Tab and <Add> a Schedule. Change the setup of this schedule to once a week and <Save>.

    LimagitoX-Remove-Empty-Directories-Schedule

    2.- Set the File PreFix Filter to something impossible so it will never pickup files:

    LimagitoX-File-Prefix-Filter-Setup

    3.- Directory Filter Setup, enable ‘Include Subdirectories’ and ‘Delete Empty Subdirectories On Scan’:

    LimagitoX-Dir-Filter-Delete-Empty-Folders

    4.- Add a Dummy ‘Pascal Script’ as Destination:

    LimagitoX-Destination-Pascal-Script
