    How to move files and folders automatically at certain times

    How to move files and folders automatically at certain times


    DE: Ich versuche es herauszufinden wie ich die Daten und Ordner zu bestimmte Zeit automatisch verschieben lasse.

    Bsp. Täglich um 11:00 Uhr. Hab es versucht doch leider kriege ich es nicht hin. Können Sie mir da Helfen.

    EN: I am trying to figure out how to move the files and folders automatically at certain times.

    For example, daily at 11:00 a.m. I have tried but unfortunately I can’t get it to work. Can you help me?


    This is possible using our Scheduler option. The ‘Schedule’ setup determines when a Rule (= Task) is automatically triggered. I’ve marked the ‘Schedule’ button in the following screenshot. We have a couple of ways to trigger (= start) a Rule.

    In the first example we used a timer. In this ‘How To’ we are going to use the ‘Scheduler’ option instead so I’ve disabled the ‘Timer’ option.

    Switch to ‘Scheduler’ tab and enable ‘Use Scheduler’. Next click <Add>:

    Please have a look at the following schedule setup.

    • Give the newly added schedule a ‘valid’ name, this will help you later to understand the goal of this schedule.
    • Do not change ‘Begin Schedule’ if you don’t need it. Default is the DateTime when the schedule was added.
    • Do not change ‘End Schedule’ if you do not need it. Default is ‘Never’.
    • You can test your setup by using the <RUN> button. This will only show some information about when the Rule would be triggered when using the current setup. It helps you to check your setup. Click <Stop> to exit the test.
    • Click <Save> when the schedule setup is ready.

    New schedule was added, click <Save> and please do not forget to enable the Rule afterwards. Icon should turn blue when it is enabled. A disabled Rule (grey) will not receive any trigger.

    Important, when using a Single trigger like once a day, it is very important that the ‘Stabilized File Check’ is disabled. This option needs at least two scans because it will compare the size of the  files between 2 scans.

    If you need any help with this ‘automatically at certain times’ option, please let us know.

    How-To Global Schedules within LimagitoX File Mover

    On general request we added Global Schedules in version v2020.5.25.0

    LimagitoX GlobalSchedules menu

    Below is a screenshot of the current setup form. Here you will be able to:

    • Add and Delete schedules
    • Enable / Disable the schedule
    • Add schedule name
    • Setup the Scheduler
    • Add schedule description
    • Select the Rules you want to trigger with this schedule


    Scheduler Setup form:


    The RunTime shows information about which Global Schedule triggered the Rule.


    Our goal is to release this new option before the end of May 2020.

    Released in v2020.5.25.0. In this first release, setup of the Schedules can only be done using LimagitoXR (Remote Tool for Windows).

    In version v2020.5.29.0 we added Global Schedules Setup in LimagitoXW (Web Remote Tool).

    If you need info about this new option, please let us know.
