9.6.Manifest file and its settings

The manifest file is an XLS file that is automatically created when exporting any files and/or folders into ZIP format. It is a supplementary export file and can be found in the ZIP file downloaded from the Tasks list. It contains a summary about the items that have been exported. By default, the manifest contains the following information:

  • On the Resume tab the user may view the task summary information, the start date and end date of the export action, the total number and size of the exported items;
  • On the Files tab the user may find the title of the files, the file type, size and path of each file.
Note: The File System Archive’s manifest file (Title column) contains links that point to the corresponding files.
