File property extraction applies to file properties that are part of the file system.The file properties are closely related to the several file systems that Microsoft Windows supports, like variations of FAT and NTFS. File properties supported by file property extraction are only supported by Windows based filings systems.
Properties that you can configure:
The maximum amount of threads the task under execution consumes.
This property controls type checking of the container to hold the value of a property. When type checking is on, the propertytype and the containertype should match (with a certain tolerance). When it is off, both types may vary and the propertytype is serialized to a more or less untyped textstring before assigning it to its container.
The subset of supported file properties the task has to support. This enumeration/set of supported properties is listed below:
- Volume name of the file location
- Folder part of the access path name of the file location
- Filename part of the access path name of the file location
- Date created Timestamp of when the file was created
- Date accessed Timestamp of when the file was last accessed
- Date modified Timestamp of when the file was last modified
- File size of the file
- File attributes of the file
- File share Network part of the access path of the file location (URI)
- Disk identifier of the file location
- Path folder 1-10 10 , properties that list one node per property from the access path name of the file location
- Mimetype of the file, in fact this is the only property that is not a filing system property (external) but a property derived from the file content (internal).
All properties apply to file properties of a matching document in a ZyLAB index.
Note that some of these properties can only relate to Windows based filing systems, like volume name and file disk. The syntax of the filepath property is compliant with the Windows notation, it uses the (standard) backslash-symbol (standardized) slash-symbol for pathnode delimiting.
