The Synchronize Directories Action maintains an exact copy of data between a local folder and a remote directory. It supports updating remote files (upload), local files (download) and both (synchronize).

After the Synchronize Directories Action is completed, the information on its operations is temporarily stored in dynamic variables that can be retrieved by any other Action within the same Task via Variable Wizard. For example, these variables can be saved as text by Write to File Action, emailed to admin by Send Email Action or used as dynamic parameters in other Actions.

Automatic list processing…

The Synchronize Directories variables returned as lists (even multi-level) can be automatically processed in further Actions. Use the For Each Action to parse a given text string (any list variable) and sequentially retrieve its elements one by one · see list processing examples. Or, use the Split Text and Lookup Text Actions to access list elements by their indices.
