Zip archive

This scheduled task type allows archiving files and folders.

Source folder
Source folder to archive files.

Zip file
Name of zip file.

Additional info for file name
Select additional info that can be appended to the file name.

Include files
One or more file names separated by semicolon. Wildcards (“*” and “?”) are accepted. Since wildcard characters normally match directory separators (“\”), this option may be used to include any files that are in subdirectories. For example,
“1.txt” – include 1.txt file only
“sf\1.txt” – include 1.txt file from “sf” subdirectory only
“*.txt” – include .txt files from all subdirectories
“sf\*.txt” – include .txt files from “sf” and all its subdirectories
“*\*.txt” – include .txt files from all subdirectories (not from main directory)

Exclude files
One or more file names separated by semicolon. Wildcards (“*” and “?”) are accepted. Since wildcard characters normally match directory separators (“\”), this option may be used to exclude any files that are in subdirectories. For example,
“1.txt” – exclude 1.txt file only
“sf\1.txt” – exclude 1.txt file from “sf” subdirectory only
“*.txt” – exclude .txt files from all subdirectories
“sf\*.txt” – exclude .txt files from “sf” and all its subdirectories
“*\*.*” – exclude all subdirectories

Compression level
Compression level from 0 (fastest) to 9 (best).

Password
Set password to zip file.

Notes:

  • To zip a single file, specify its folder, then specify its file name separately, in the Include files filed.
  • To zip files without recursing down directories in the file system, specify “*\*.*” in the Exclude files field.
  • The produced Zip file can include files larger than 4 GB.
  • The produced Zip file uses UTF-8 paths where possible.

.:Testimonials

I had the pleasure of purchasing Advanced Task Scheduler, an incredibly versatile, advanced windows task scheduler. This program has taken the Windows Task Scheduler to a new level. The customer service is superb. I needed a specific modification to the program, and they accommodated it by sending me a patch. I HIGHLY recommend this product.
