This works -- not as eligant a solution as I'd like. I cannot get the hotfolder script and the WF with the external node to execute at the same time.
First set up a Hotfolder with a script (copy.bat). This copies the incoming file before it is converted to pdf.
Setup another WF, with an external node (setup with the parameters shown below) and the script save_temp2.bat). This copies the xpif, preflight , and the job pdf). Remember one needs a preflight node to create a preflight report. The attached file need the .txt extension removed to run.
Thanks David! Merry Christmas!
I have tried this bat file with exrtrnal node before but it backup the converted file (pdf file) only. I would like to backup the input file (postscript file), temp xpf file and the preflight report.
I would like to copy the job related folder in spool folder to somewhere for backup; is it possible?
I noticed that there are five related folders in sppol folder for one job.
