9.8. Copying Files

Selecting which copy option to run

If "Allow user to select copy option" is enabled (for each respective allowed/blocked designation), the file handling option screen will allow users to select the destination for files.
Navigating between allowed and blocked is possible when the option is enabled for both.
Selection is done by clicking each option to run (a check mark indicates the option is selected and will be performed) and then hitting the "Copy" button.
