File and Folder Conditions

File and Folder conditions check whether or not specific files and folders exist on managed endpoints before applying the associated rule items. In addition to searching for files, a condition can be set up to apply rule items if a text file contains specific text.

Condition Description
File Exists A condition that checks whether a file does or does not exist on managed endpoints based on the name and location of the file; the date the file was created, modified, or accessed; and its size
Text File Search A condition that searches for files on managed endpoints which do or do not contain a specified text string. Set the file location and enter the text to search the file for. Environment variables are supported in the file path and the search text fields. Environment variables are supported in the search text, for example %computername%.
Folder Exists A condition that checks whether a folder does or does not exist on managed endpoints based on the name and location of the folder; the date the folder was created, modified, or accessed; and its size.
