The Move File activity moves a file from one directory to another. You can move files to network shares that are available using UNC paths. You can also move files from a local or publicly available network folder, such as an FTP location, to an internal folder.
Before you configure the Move File activity, you need to determine the following:
The files you are moving.
The destination path where you will move the files.
Use the following information to configure the Move File activity.
|File||Type the path and name of the file that you want to move. You can use the * and ? wildcards to specify the filename and path. These wildcards behave the same way as in the Windows Command Prompt.|
|Include sub-folders||Select this option to move any files within the sub-folders of the path you have specified that match the filename that you have specified.|
|Folder||Type the path of the folder where you want the files to be moved to.|
|If the destination exists||Select the action that you want to take if a file with the same name already exists in the destination folder:|
Overwrite: Select this option to overwrite the existing file with the file that is being moved.
Fail: Select this option to cause the Move File activity to fail if the filename already exists.
Create a file with a unique name: Select this option to append a value to the filename to create a unique name that does not conflict with an existing name.
|File age||Select Is less than or Is more than from the drop-down list to move the files that are older or newer, respectively, than the number of days that you specify.|
|days||Enter the number of days that you will use with the File age measure.|
|Date of transfer||Set the file date at the destination to the date when it was copied to the folder.|
