How to export data from FC Cloud project to the local machine using FC Connect

Step-by-step guide

  1. Open the project in Project Setup Station and make sure that:
    a) Project -> Project Properties -> General tab -> Export root path should be blank!
  2. b) Your project export setting contains the relative path, e.g. “/Export”
  3. Download the ABBYY Cloud Sync Tool (download ) and install it
  4. Stop the “ABBYY FlexiCapture Cloud Sync” service
  5. Open “C:\Program Files (x86)\ABBYY FlexiCapture Cloud Sync\config.json” and edit it as shown below:
     "url": "",
     "tenant": "your_tenant_name",
     "user": “your_user_name",
     "password": "your_password",
     "projects": [
         "name": "Your project’s name",
         "export": {
           "directory": "C:\\CloudSync\\Export",  # export path
           "period": "00:01:00"  # it will update every 1 minute
  6. Now all the export will be first performed on Application Server (which is hosted by ABBYY) and every minute Cloud Sync Tool will grab the data onto the machine where the service is running. Enjoy.Save the config and start the service.
  7. *(optional) You can test the tool before you started the service by running Abbyy.FlexiCapture.HotFolder.exe, the terminal with showing all the processes and errors, which is very useful.

    Hello Maksym,

    I am using ABBYY FlexiCapture Connect to export data in local machine, the exportation works good but i need to delete exported files after a period from local machine but FlexiCapture connect recreate  those exported file again.

    There is any way to prevent FlexiCapture Connect to recreate deleted files in local machine?
