WipeDrive offers the option to sort out the reports while saving them on a folder location like FTP, Windows Share or USB device. And/or you can change the name of the file while saving. 

There are 2 options; the 'normal settings' which is the more easy method with the list shown below, or via the JSON Pointer Syntax. This one is a bit more complicated, but has much more options.

The "easy method": 

For this a couple of settings need to be changed. But more important is to know on which value you want to sort them out. 

In this example we will show it works on 2 level, creating a folder and sub-folder. 


You process various customers, each costomer is a returning customer, so Company A Ltd. has 4 project to do; Project 1, project 2, project 3 and Project 4. Each report must be dropped in their own folder so those can be zipped and send. 

We can do this by the following settings in the wd-options.cfg file:


If only on project number must be sorted, use only 1 user reference. 

Than User 1 and user 2 must be set: 


user1-name=Customer name





user2-name=Project number 




Note: Project number can be Batch ID, LOT ID, or anything you normally use as reference name to a project.

uncommand post-prompt=true in case it has to popup AFTER the wipe. Leaving the # will mean it pops up BEFORE the wipe. 

It will create a Folder for Company A ltd in there 4 sub-folders; Project 1, project 2, project 3 and Project 4. 

Change the file name:

In above example we sort out on 2 folder types. But you might wantto change the filename of the files you want to save. 

In the example you find the part: {hd-serial}-{time}{date}  the part {hd-serial} means the file will have the drive SN in it, as where the -{time}{date} will add a date and time to it. This makes it unique for all files as the same drive can be wipe multiple times. 

Values that can be used: 

{hd-serial} = the serial number of the current drive

{hd-eui64} = the eui64 of nvme drive (or blank)

{date} = end date in format: %Y.%m.%d (eg: 2017.11.29)

{time} = end time in format: %I.%M%p (eg: 10.36PM)

{time24} = end time in format: %H.%M (eg: 22.36)

{computer-id} = whatever was entered into the prompt for a computer id

{username} = whatever was entered into the prompt for a username

{custom} = whatever was entered into the prompt for a custom value

{serial} = the computer's serial number (if available)

{vendor} = the computer's vendor name (if available)

{model} = the computer's model name (if available)

{wipe-status} = the status of the current drive

{overall-status} = the status of all of drives

{hostname} = the hostname of the machine

{ipaddress} = the ip address that is assigned to the machine

{macaddress} = the hardware address of the first network interface

{user1} ... {user10} = whatever was entered into the select user field

{product} = the product and version number (eg: WipeDrive Enterprise 9.4)

{wipe-name} = the name of the wipe used to erase the drive

{operation-uuid} = the unique operation identifier

{job-uuid} = the unique job indentifier

You can use multiple of above in the same filename. 

On the GUI side you can change it on "Log type and destination"

And on Custom log fields

The JSON Pointer Syntax:

This is a bit harder than above, but has much more options. 

To start save a JSON file, if not possible, there is an example attached. 

In this example a string for a filename of the saved files to HD-Model_HD-Serial_Wipe-Status. 

In short the script will be: 


The values are gotten from the JSON file and work like this:

First open the JSON file and find the data you need. Here we're going to setup the HD-Serial: {+Device/Serial} To do so Find the header first. In this case the header "Device" is found under "Hardware". So the string starts with {/Hardware/Device/[...]} or {+Device/[...]} Here we're using the '+Device' option. 

As a second, sub-value we can use 'Serial' for the HD-Serial or we coould use 'Model' if we want to have the model in the filename. 

"Device": [
