ToSort directories contain any files that are not included in any of your DATs. You have the ability to add multiple ToSort directories for different purposes. For example, you could assign a ToSort directory for newly downloaded files and another for any files that are removed from your RomRoot.
The settings for ToSort directories are not stored in the RomVault3Cfg.xml file. ToSort directory definitions are stored in the cache and are not editable outside of the RomVault UI.

|Compressing and decompressing solid archives||-||X|
|Fixing sets with files not found in any other collected set||X||X||X|
If no Cache ToSort is configured, then the Primary ToSort will be used for compressing and decompressing solid archives.
RomVault comes configured with a default Primary ToSort directory. This directory is called “ToSort” and it resides in the same location as the RomVault EXE. You must create this directory yourself.
You may remove the default Primary ToSort from the tree only if you have at least one other ToSort directory configured. RomVault requires a Primary ToSort to function because that is where all removals are placed.
If you choose to only use a single ToSort directory then it will be multi-purpose for the following use cases:
/cues/folder of your Primary ToSort.
You can add a new ToSort directory by clicking “Add ToSort” from the top menu. There is no practical limit to the number of ToSorts you can add.
To Remove a ToSort directory, right click on it in the tree and select the “Remove” option. Once you remove the ToSort, all references to files within that directory are removed from the cache.
There are three types of ToSort directories you can use to customize your setup in way that works best for you:
To assign a ToSort as Primary or Cache right click on it in the tree and select “Set To Primary ToSort” or “Set To Cache ToSort” respectively.
You can lock a ToSort or any other directory in the tree by right clicking the checkbox.
The lock icon signifies that the contents of the directory will be read-only for the purposes of fixing. Any files in a directory flagged as read-only will be used for fixes, however the files will not be removed from that directory. This feature is particularly useful for an archived set of files, or a Torrent download directory where you would not want to remove files while you are seeding.
The read-only flag can be removed by left-clicking the checkbox.
