Retry option for files that failed to copy

If FileBoss cannot copy a file it will give you the option of trying again (such as if you have to close a file that is in use) or just skip the file. Of course FileBoss will log any files that were skipped due to copy errors.

Option to Skip Problem Files

Rather than stopping and asking what to do when a problem file is encountered FileBoss can just log the error and continue. Use check the Skip errors (Don't ask - just log and continue) option on the copy dialog.

Flexible Overwrite Options

When FileBoss encounters encounters a file that already exists you can tell it to:

overwrite

overwrite only if newer

skip

rename the old file

rename the new file

And, of course, each option can be applied to files automatically or you can decide on a case by case basis as the copy process continues.

Complete Logging

The Results window keeps a complete log of what was copied, what was not and what errors occurred if any. These logs can even be automatically written to disk as simple text files for future reference.

Detailed and Configurable Warnings

You can tell FileBoss when to ask you what to do if the file being copied already exists. You can tell it to never warn you, or if it has one or more of the following attributes: Hidden, System, Read-only, Archive and even if the file is executable (e.g. has an extension of EXE, COM, DLL, OCX or BAT).

Multi-folder copying

When copying from a Virtual Folder FileBoss can copy Files in multiple folders, retaining their original folder structure (the default behavior) or all files to one folder.
