Test Run vs. Execute

Scroll Prev Top Next More

One of the most convenient aspects of the Filter & Zip system is the Test Run facility. Once you've defined a Filter & Zip 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 Filter & Zip 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 Filter & Zip Job criteria (e.g. filter properties) prior to executing.
