Data source name – the field contains any name that will denote the operations performed with files. You will see this name in the drop-down list in the main window of the program. By default, it is Data source #XXX, where XXX is the number of the data source.

 

By default, the list of folders for scanning is empty. Click the "Action" button or right-click the empty list and you will see the action menu (fig. 2.6.2).

Add... - the item allows you to add a new folder to the list. After you select this item, you will see the Folder Properties dialog box on the screen (fig. 2.6.3). Specify the folder properties, click the OK button and the folder will appear in the list. If you change your mind, click Cancel.

 

Delete - the item removes the selected folder. Before the deletion, the confirmation dialog box will be displayed on the screen when you will have to click Yes to remove the folder from the list or No to cancel the operation. The item is not available if the list is empty.

 

Edit... – the item shows the "Folder properties" dialog box (fig. 2.6.3). Change the folder properties and click OK to save them. If you change your mind, click Cancel. The item is not available if the list is empty.

 

Up - the item moves the folder one position up. The item is not available when the list is empty or when the first folder is selected.

Path - the field contains the path to the folder. You can select the folder from the list by pressing the button to the right. The default folder is the current one.

 

Subfolders - the checkbox enables/disables scanning subfolders. By default, subfolders are scanned.

 

Depth - the depth of scanning subfolders. 9999 by default.

 

Note: The scanning depth is counted from the specified path to the folder. For example:

C:\Files\Data\Test - source folder

C:\Files\Data\Test\Folder0 - level 1

C:\Files\Data\Test\Folder0\Folder1 - level 2

etc.

 

Note: If the specified folder does not exist, you will see an error message on the screen and you will not be able to save the folder properties so it is recommended to select folder from the list by clicking the button to the right from the Path field.
