OptionDescription
Ignore Hidden FilesBy default, hidden files are included in copy operations. Set this flag to exclude hidden files.
Ignore Read Only FilesBy default, read only files are included in copy operations. Set this flag to exclude hidden files.
Ignore System FilesBy default, system files are included in copy operations. Set this flag to exclude hidden files.
Only copy files that have the archive flag setIf this flag is set, only flags flagged as "ready to archive" will be copied.
Clear the archive flag after copyIf this flag is set, the "ready to archive" flag will be cleared from source files after successfully copying them
Copy empty foldersSet this flag to copy empty folders
Always overwrite destination filesBy default, CopyTools checks to see if the destination file does not exist or is older then the source before copying. Setting this flag causes the destination file to be overwritten regardless of its state.
Move deleted files to the Recycle BinIf this flag is set, any files deleted as a result of a copy or move are sent to the Recycle Bin rather than deleted outright
Do not copy security attributesPrevents the copying of NTFS security permissions
Run this profile automatically when the destination device is addedBy setting this flag, the profile will automatically trigger execution if the destination device is attached. For example, if you back up to an external hard disk, you can have the profile run whenever the disk is plugged in.
Use system temp path for temporary filesSpecifies that compression based profiles will use the system temp path for temporary files rather than the destination path
