Exclude tab of List Files Action allows excluding the files that would have been listed otherwise. In other words, if a file matches all inclusion criteria, fits into size range and is not skipped as the one of the firsts entries or due to the list limitations, it can still be skipped due explicit settings of exclusion mask or file date (newer or older than specified).
|Exclude mask||Specify either file name & mask or provide data from Variable Wizard to exclude matching files from being listed. Multiple inputs must be separated by |
|Do not include files that are modified after||Files will be excluded from the list on basis of their age (when it is more recent than specified). Both date & time of file and its age in seconds, minutes, hours or days can be specified.|
|Do not include files that are modified before||Files will be excluded from the list on basis of their age (when it is older than specified). Both date & time of file and its age in seconds, minutes, hours or days can be specified.|
|File date to use||Choose which file date will be matched when applying exclusion filter. Creation date specifies when file was first created, Last modified date—last time file was changed, Last accessed date—last time file was read.|
|Interactive preview||Shows interactive preview of the advanced date filter. It automatically excludes files of different types—new or old, recently modified, lately used, etc.|
|Time units||Define and set a time frame in any given preferred format—be it milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours, or days.|
