CopyTools offers a number of different copy modes.
|Copy||A basic copy operation. New or modified files will be copied from the source locations to the destinations.|
|Mirror||A more advanced copy. In addition to copying new and modified files, any files or folders present in destination folders which do not exist in the source folder are removed.|
|Move||A basic move operation. New or modified files are copied from the source locations to the destinations, after which they are deleted from the source folders.|
|Delete||Files matching the inclusion criteria are deleted from the source folders|
Each mode has its own advantages. Copy (also known as echo) ensures that source files are successfully copied to alternate locations, whereas mirror ensures that the destination matches the source, and any obsolete files are removed. Move jobs are handy when you want to move files from one place to another, for example the results of download jobs or other automated processes that produce some form of output. Delete jobs are useful for cleaning up old files, such as build artefacts or log files.
