Rules are a set of logical conditions that describe the type of files or folders you want to automatically process. Consider those rules as filters that decide which files will be processed. Rules can be based on filters such as file name, creation/modification/last access date, file size, MP3 tags and more! In order to save time you can use the ‘Kind’ rule which enables you to use pre-defined file types (video, music, etc.). There is no restriction on the amount of rules created.
