MagicProcess and MagicFolder can work together to protect in the same directory. Due to how fast the process of saving and protecting data occurs between the two technologies, some software may not be able to release the file handle in time. In this situation, it is advised to configure ignored extensions for MagicProcess just for the file-types causing an issue.

Example configuration--

  1. Git configured with MagicProcess and MagicFolder in order to ensure all source code is protected not only when it is cloned but when it is touched in its destination folder.
  • MagicProcess ignored extensions set for “git.exe” and “git-remote-https.exe” processes on the following extensions: .pack and “extension-less” files (pack, .).
