Container Files & External Storage
Environment = FM 12 Advanced / FM 12 Server
Currently scripts load documents (PDF) into a container field via insert the file. If the container field already has a file in it, then that file is over-written. During development I've just used internal storage. But as I get ready to deploy the final solution I'm weighing internal v. external storage.
With external storage what happens? When a replacement document is loaded to a container that already has a document in it, Is the external file deleted from the contain and the external storage location and then replaced by the new file? Since file names include a date/time stamp no two files will have the same exact name. Or do I have to explicitly delete the per-existing file (if one exists) prior to loading the new file so that "orphaned" files are not left on the external server storage location?
