Test Run vs. Execute

Scroll Prev Top Next More

One of the most convenient aspects of the FilterZip system is the Test Run facility. Once you've defined a FilterZip Job within the user interface, you can click the Test toolbar button in order to review exactly which files will be matched by the job.


Test runs perform a search for the files that match the criteria specified by the FilterZip Job, but do not engage the compression (zipping) step of the process. Therefore, no files are zipped, copied, or moved. This allows you to safely test FilterZip Job criteria (e.g. filter properties) prior to executing.
