In the following chart, you can find the correct syntax and examples for user defined rules to help you influence zone filing.
|If you want to work on a file, then enter the absolute path.
Example: c:\windows\explorer.exe - only this file is worked on
|If you want to capture all of a folder’s sub- entries (files and sub- folders) by a rule, the rule expression needs to end with "\*".
|If only one folder without sub folder should be captured, then enter it without an expression:
|If you want to move all files of a certain type to one zone, enter a star before the file ending.
Example: *.omg includes all files and folders ending in .omg. The star jumps over a number of symbols and searches for the expression which is located behind it.
|Only files with a certain characteristic in their name and with the exact file ending are supposed to be captured.
Example: *test*123*.txt includes all text files which contain a "test" and "123" in their name. This means for example: test123.txt (the star can only jump over zeros) or also xtestyz123abc.txt.
|Files can also be approached that are not constrained by where they are stored in a drive.
Example: The rule \file.txt finds all files which are called file.txt, and lie in the root directory of any drive. If no drive letter is given and the rule starts with a backslash, a path is intended that is independent from the drive on which the file it is located.
|If you want to include all sub-folders of a folder, use the backslash in the beginning and at the end of the folder name and the star.
Example: \windows\* all sub-entries of all Windows folders on all hard disks
c:\hall?.txt - Here the question mark is any (not empty) symbol. It is also possible to cover c:\hallo.txt and c:\halli.txt or also c:\hall8.txt.
