The File System connector us used to return a file list from a directory on either a local drive or a remote drive via UNC file share.
The File System connector can also return File Data and when connected to a similar provider will write file data.
The following connectors can be used with the File System connector to write file data.
- SharePoint Document Library
- SQL Server Table with Blob Column configuration.
- Amazon S3
- Azure Blob Storage
Do not used Mapped Drives with Scheduled Tasks or Ouvvi since they require a loaded user profile which is not available with Scheduled Tasks or Ouvvi.
The Folder Path to begin returning the file list.
Include sub folders in the search result
Return paths with forward slashes
/ rather than back slashes
Only return files with Windows filter file pattern i.e.
Regular expression to exclude files from the results. Multiple expressions can be validated with a
; between each one.
A Hash Algorithm to run on the file data to get a file checksum or Hash.
Can be used with Azure and AWS S3 to detect file data changes when the hash value changes.
Return only files that have been modified since this value.
Below is the Data Schema that Data Sync returns for the File System Connector. The actual file data is not part of the schema and is read when required during the Synchronisation operation.
