    Q&A 19: Backup 2 Files but Only Copy 1 to Destination

    Q: Backup 2 Files but Only Copy 1 to Destination.

    I need to set up a job that

    1. moves 2 files of different extensions off of a source
    2. Backup both files
    3. Only send 1 file to the destination.

    The 2 files from the source will be like ‘Filename.rec’ and ‘Filename.snd’. I want both backed up, but only want ‘Filename.snd’ to be sent to the destination. Is that possible?

    A: Yes that is possible using some Pascal Script.

    First you need to add a filename include filter to only filter the files you want (*.snd and *.rec files):

    LimagitoX File Mover Include Filename Filter

    Add two destinations. Really important:

    1. First destination (ID1) must be your Backup destination
    2. Second destination (ID2) must the output destination.

    LimagitoX File Mover Destinations

    Add the following ‘On Destinations‘ Pascal Script:
    LimagitoX File Mover Pascal Script Menu Item
      psExitCode:= 1;
      // ... add your code here
      If SameText(psDestinationID, 'ID2') then
        If Not SameText(ExtractFileExt(psFilename), '.snd') then
          psExitCode := -1;
