How Qfiling works
When using QNAP NAS as centralized file storage, being able to efficiently organize files is a fundamental principle for everyday management and usage. But when faced with a huge number of files spread across multiple folders, it becomes increasingly harder, more time consuming, and frustrating to categorize and archive them. With Qfiling organizing files is now automatic and efficient.
Create your Qfiling rules in 3 steps
Qfiling provides an intuitive interface for creating custom file organization rules. Simply use the filters to find the files you need, select editing modules, choose a file destination, set the file structure and - voilà - all done!
Qfiling provides various filters to determine files to organize, including file name, file size, modified date and more (several criteria require the Qsirch app).
Use editing modules to automate editing tasks throughout the file organization process, including video transcoding, encryption/decryption, compression and more.
Converts videos to various resolutions and saves them using the universal MP4 format.
Moves subtitle files (.srt) to the same folder as their identically-named videos.
Encryption & Decryption
Supports QENC file-level encryption and decryption (desktop users without a QNAP NAS can use the QENC Decrypter to decrypt QENC files. Click here to download)
Compresses files into ZIP or 7z archive files.
Adds text or image watermarks to images or video files.
Resizes images based on percentage or pixel values.
Configure image quality and convert images to specific formats.
Use the QuMagie Core AI engine to recognize faces and blur/pixelate them.
Converts and merges multiple images into PDF files.
Set the destination path, folder structure, and add more options (such as renaming all the files) and your files will be organized to the right folder.
Not only file organizing but also smart recycling
Select the source path and use filter criteria (such as key words in the file name, file size, modified date, and more) to instantly move filtered files to the Recycle Bin (several criteria require the Qsirch app).
Categorize and file
Qfiling includes categories for images, videos, music, documents, and emails. After setting up Qfiling, files in selected folders will be automatically archived into dedicated folders based on their category.
Schedule or set real-time tasks
- One-time: Immediately processes the filing task with no repetition.
- Scheduled: Set hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly filing schedules. Qfiling will automatically process filing tasks in the background.
- Real-time: When files are detected in the source folder, Qfiling runs the required filing tasks immediately.
Flexible file transfer
Qfiling not only works on the local NAS, but also reaches external storage devices, remote NAS, and mounted cloud storage space (using HybridMount). Only selected categories will be backed up/moved to the destination.
Supports Qsirch and QuMagie apps to well archive files
Use Qfiling directly in Qsirch 5.0 to perform one-time or automatic archival tasks based on your search criteria.
AI albums created in QuMagie 1.3 work with Qfiling, simplifying the organization of huge photo collections.
