Configuring File System Target Service

Purpose

Aparavi allows business users to automate data actions by linking File System sources and targets, no code or command line necessary.

Connecting File System targets allows the system to direct data into pre-configured data services. This enables businesses to build custom workflows for data hygiene, compliance, and retention use cases. Once the File System target service has been linked, copy action queries can be customized to run in the background.

Please Note: FAT32 file systems and removable or mounted drives cannot be configured as a target service at this time.
