@hitnrun30: I fixed it in the following pre-release. Let me know.

@tproli: I fixed it. Now double quotes are not automatically added and %File% is automatically added only if "FixOpenWithDestination" option is True (default value).

Here the updated version:

That did it

Ok I have a new one, that I think is needed as a feature. I have been in contact with the team but am I just not setting something up right or is it a feature.

My test is I put one file in the monitored folder

C:\Temp\Download

and the exact same file here

C:\Temp\Download\Temp\Temp

The association will run on the one on C:\Temp\Download, but not on the other file.

I would like to have monitoring of a folder and its subfolders, is that possible?

@SAMARSH: it works on my computer, can you verify it with the last beta version above?

@tproli: %DropItDir% abbreviation added (but not in frontend yet), while I'll add the absolute path conversion modifier soon:

@hitnrun30: you could enable "Scan subfolders and not try to process them" from Options to do it

I did do that, it didn't work

Hello,

i would like to use dropit to automate picture manipulation using photoshop, the process is simple, monitor a folder and whenever a new file is added use the the open with action. the only issue i am facing is that the action runs on all the files in that folder and not the newly added files, how can i manage to do it? i tried to use the filters but that doesn't seem to work.

any help would be appreciated.

wixar172, in the Association, click the additional filters icon in field 2. Tick the second “Date created” rule, then select “< 60 seconds” if you wished to process files added in the last minute. This of course presumes that the file properties/created value is in the last 60 seconds!

You may also have to look into Options/Monitoring tab and adjust the time interval to suit, such as 30 seconds.

I too had issues with getting only “new” files to process (and not old), until I could setup the appropriate variables. The monitored folder has to be checked often enough to pickup new files and the association filter has to know what constitutes a “new” file. I believe that one has to have both of these options setup to work successfully.

Hope this helps!

I was wondering if it would be possible to speed-up the loading of DropIt? It is a bit slow to start-up on my system (subsequent start-up's don't seem to be really any faster, which is odd as I would have thought the process would have been cached after the first run).

Lupo, It appears to work with 8.1.2, when it didn’t with 8.1.0.

Wondering whether there is a solution for the following: I'd like to set the behavior when encountering duplicates to be specific to each association. Right now it appears to be only a global behavior set under the main options menu. It would be useful, for example, if one association could overwrite when encountering duplicates, while another could rename when encountering duplicates.

Any ideas?

I have to say, this is a solid program. Kudos! I was curious, is it possible to have Dropit connect to an ftp server and download files to a specific directory? Every so often, I will get a file from a client or photos of possible work sites, yet it becomes a chore to have to log into each different server (many clients that are particular about the service that they use) and download the most recent files over and over. Does Dropit support this function? I know there is an option to upload, but curious about downloading.

Thanks!

Put the associations into a specific Profile, then contextual right click on the program icon. Select Profiles/Customize then contextual right click and select “Options: Use automatic choice for duplicates” and change it.

Hope this helps!

I am guessing here, but If your FTP app will accept command line parameters, then you could get DropIt to run a .bat script.

Feature Request: RegEx destination

#1334 Post by angerthosenear » Mon Aug 17, 2015 8:21 am

I'm mirroring this from the sourceforge page which seems out of use now.

Would it be possible to allow RegEx for the destination folder? Apply RegEx to the %FileName% for instance to generate the folder destination. In my case, my rule is to just match *.mkv which is easy enough. But the destination I want would be determined by RegEx on the filename.

For instance I would like my destination folder to be:
%FileName%/(?<=(?:]|))\s)(?![|.).+?(?=\s?-?\s?(?:\d)*\s?(?:[|())/
(or however your would handle destination with RegEx)

In the instance of multiple matches for a single file, can take the first match.

This way Things with multiple episodes get auto sorted into a magically created folder.

Here is a really long link to show what part of the filename I'd like to go to the destination.

I released a new minor update with some fixes and improvements (some of them discussed here):
http://www.dropitproject.com/

@angerthosenear: I may consider to add an abbreviation modifier to fully support regex. At the moment you could try to do something with available modifiers:
