Description

Regular expression

Select this option if you want to base the rule on a regular expression. Otherwise, the rule will be treated as a shell expression thus matching any character in file and/or folder names for each '?' character in the rule and accepting any sequence of character in file and/or folder names for each '*' character in the rule.

Rule

Enter the expression of the rule in accord with your selection of Regular expressions i.e. either a regular or a shell expression. Use the '?' character in the rule to match any character in file and/or folder names and the '*' character in the rule to accept any sequence of characters in file and/or folder names.

Choose...

When not basing the rule on Regular expressions, have convenient access to pre-defined well-known shell expressions which can be combined into complex shell expressions simply by clicking the mouse buttons.

Target

Select which file-system resources the rule will apply to - files, folders, or both

Action
