Disk Boss Ultimate and Disk Boss Server provide the ability to configure one or more file matching rules allowing one to select files by the file name, directory, file type, category, file size, file attributes, creation, last modification and last access dates, user name, etc.
During the file copy process, Disk Boss will evaluate all files using the specified file matching rules, copy files matching the rules and skip all other files.
Advanced File Copy Options In order to open the advanced file copy options dialog, press the 'Advanced Options' button located on the file copy dialog.
The file options dialog consists of the 'General' tab, 'Advanced' tab, 'Rules' tab, 'Exclude' tab, 'Options' tab and 'Miscellaneous' tab.
When copying files from/to protected operating system directories or running production systems, some copy operations may fail due to one or more files locked by the operating system or other running applications.
By default, Disk Boss logs non-critical errors in the operation log, which is accessible by pressing the 'Errors' button, and continues the file copy operation.
Now, the pre-configured file copy command will appear in the 'Commands' tool pane.
In order to execute the pre-configured file copy command, click on the command item in the 'Commands' tool pane.
In order to start a simple file copy operation, select one or more files or directories in the Disk Boss file navigator, press the right mouse button and select the 'Copy Files To' menu item.
The 'General' tab provides the user with the ability to optimize file copy and data migration operations for user-specific storage configurations and performance requirements.
Disk Boss is optimized for multi-core/multi-CPU computers and advanced RAID storage systems and capable of copying files using multiple, parallel file copy threads.
Copying vast amounts of data may require significant amounts of time.
Sometimes, in order to perform an urgent operation, it may be required to temporary pause a long-running data migration operation.
