When I‘m setting up Spitfire and have lots of files for all my projects, is there a way to speed up the file load using the Add Files tool?
The Spitfire Add Files tool does a validation check as you add files to upload to the Catalog. If you are in a scenario where you are loading to start up your Spitfire installation (or the initial load of files for a new project), you can by-pass the checks and speed up the process by activating BulkMode.
To activate BulkMode for the Add Files tool:
- Create a c:spitfire folder on your workstation.
- In the c:spitfire folder, create a new text file with the name: sfAddFilesBulkMode.dev.
Note:Check that Windows isn’t hiding “known” extensions and that your new file isn’t really sfAddFilesBulkMode.dev.txt.
Add Files will prompt each time it is open
‘Bulk mode is enabled on this workstation: Skip optional validations?‘
Respond Yes for faster loading or No to operate in standard mode.
