Keep source file after transfer skipped

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT v6.5.11-6.5.x

DISCUSSION

Prior to v6.5 whenever a transfer was skipped because the file already existed at the destination, the source file was always retained.

This behavior was changed in v6.5 so that the source file was deleted when the transfer was skipped. This registry setting allows overriding of the new behavior so that the source file will be retained as was done prior to v6.5. Set "EnableOldSkipBehavior" to 1 to keep the source file after the skipped transfer.

This registry key is only used by EFT versions v6.5.11 - 6.5.x. EFT v7.x and later have made this setting accessible through the administration interface, in the Copy/Move Action wizard.

Registry Key/Value:

32-bit operating system:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0]

64-bit operating system:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0]

Type: DWORD

Value = EnableOldSkipBehavior

0 = delete source file on skips (default if not present)

1 = retain source file on skips
