    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>.

    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:

    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.
