Importance Of Backing Up Your Files:
essential in using any Search & Replace program, so we've built
checks and counter checks into Alert WildCard to make it as friendly
Most useful in
protecting your files is The Backup Manager.
A Backup Job
is created for each Search & Replace you perform. All of the
settings are saved as part of the job, and all files that were
modified are copied to a mirror folder in the Alert WildCard folder
before the modifications take place.
Manager window is shown below:
Manager will store up to 10 backup jobs. Then old jobs will have to
be deleted in order to make room for new ones. This limitation is
there because backup jobs require a great deal of hard drive space in
order to mirror your files and folders.
Backup Manager Controls:
Backup Jobs List:
This list displays up to 10 backup jobs that are created when you
perform a Search & Replace operation. To select a job click on
the job in this list.
Delete Job Button:
Clicking this button will cause the selected job in the Jobs List to
be deleted, along with all of the mirror files and folders created
when the job was created.
Jobs Button: Clicking this button will delete all jobs currently
displayed in the Jobs List, along with all backed up files and
folders for those jobs.
This box displays the date and time that the selected job in the Jobs
List was created, as well as the Root Folder for the Search &
Replace this job backed up.
Modified Files: Lists all of the files that were modified during
the Search & Replace that created the selected job.
Job Details Button:
Clicking this button will display the Details Window along with all
the details of the selected Job. All settings you see are saved for
later viewing when you perform a Search & Replace.
Files Button: Clicking this button will cause Alert WildCard to
restore all files that were modified by the Search & Replace
action that created the currently selected backup job.
Selected Files Only Button: Same as above, but only the files
you've selected in List Of Modified Files will be restored. You can
select more than one file by holding down the CTRL key while you
click on the file names with your mouse.
