Zoolz users can apply filters on their data selection in order to tell Zoolz to include/exclude some data (files/folders) depending on a certain Regular Expression.

The following are the most common cases that our users are asking for:

DescriptionRegular Expression
Exclude any file/folder with word temp in its name, such as:

- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\Temporary folder
- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\Only temporary file.txt
(?i)temp
Exclude any file with the archive.pst as a part of its name in your data selections, such as:

- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\archive.pst
- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\Old Archive.pst
(?i)archive\.pst$
Exclude any file with the archive.pst as the exact name in your data selections, such as:

- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\archive.pst
^.*\\archive\.pst$
Exclude files with .txt and .tmp at the end of their names (extensions), such as:

- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\File.txt
- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\File.tmp
(?i)\.(txt|tmp)$
Exclude files end with such patterns: _100x100.jpg OR 150x150.jpg OR 200x200.jpg, such as:

- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\Image_100x100.jpg
- C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\Data\Pic_200x300.jpg
