Title: Filter events not completely processing
Post by rkneale on May 2nd, 2007 at 6:16pm
hi, WD folks -

I've been trying out watchDirectory at work for the past couple of weeks and I'm quite pleased; we're planning on buying the professional version for the task we need if I can get this problem figured out.

Basically, I'm watching a rather large directory for any changes, and having WD email me every 3 hours with the changes in that directory.  There are some files I want to exclude, though, such as any temp files, so I added two filters, one for filename starts with ~, and one for filename ending with 'tmp'.  For the past week, that's been working fine, but yesterday I started getting those files in my reports again.  I can't figure out what's going on.   :-?  

Help.... thanks!

Strange.
I guess you already checked if the filters are still correct?

Can you send me the following 2 files (please ZIP them):

<task directory>\<yourtaskname>.config
<task directory>\<yourtaskname>\history.db

<task directory>: press CTRL+9 inside the watchDirectory Control Center to explore this directory
<yourtaskname>: the name of your task

so I can have a look?

Gert

hi Gert,

Just emailed you the zip file...

Yes, it's strange!  According to the filter test, they are still correct - when I put in a ~ or a 'tmp' I get a file evaluates as true and will not be processed result... just can't figure out why they're showing up in my report.  Hope the files give you some insight!
