Title: Automatic Delete not working
Post by digitlman on Oct 20th, 2010 at 5:34pm
Me again!

So, I'm testing monitoring a folder for files older than a timeframe, and then delete those old files.

The files are all .xml, so I have the filter set to that, and it tests fine.

The monitoring method is file age, with the trigger set to 2 days. using latest/creation.  Sync timestamps is fine.

I dropped some XML files from 10/15 into that dir, fire up the job, and nothing happens.

If you put some files into the watched folder the creation date is modified into today, which is less than 2 days.
You can google for some programs to manipulate creation date for your testing.

Ahh right.

Works like a charm now!
