Filters of File / folder watcher

Filter tab allows exactly specifying files / folders for monitoring by providing both include and exclude masks as well as attribute pattern.

Filter propertiesDescription
Include maskOnly files / folders matching specified file mask will activate the Trigger. By default all files are monitored, however, user may choose any watch file / folder activation pattern. Multiple inputs must be separated by | (vertical bar / pipe) character. Read more about specifying file masks and wildcards.
Exclude maskExclusion mask narrows the watch file / folder Trigger activation range by overriding inclusion mask with user specified exceptions. Files / folders with names matching settings in exclusion mask will not activate the Trigger. By default no files are excluded. Multiple exclusion masks must be separated by | (vertical bar / pipe) character. Read more about specifying file masks and wildcards.
AttributesSpecifies that files / folders that have any of the attributes selected will not active watch file / folder Trigger. File / Folder Watcher allows using Read-only, Archive, Hidden, System, Compressed, Encrypted, Not indexed and Offline attributes to configure attribute exclusion filter.
