We have a client that keeps uploading a Thumbs.db file every 5 minutes and it creates a ton of triggers. They also upload additional files periodically so I can't quite ignore it, but I want to the project to delete the Thumbs.db file every single time they upload before it even goes thru the rest of the project to push the files to another location.
I tried doing this but it bombs out with "ERROR [8099 - Create File List] An unexpected error occurred. Variable not found: Thumbs.db" and I'm a little confused:
There are several ways to handle these unwanted files. Attached is a basic project that lists out the directory and then uses a For Each Loop to loop through each file looking for a file named ‘thumbs.db’, if it detects the file it deletes it. You can then use the else condition to do your normal tasks in the project.
