Scan subfoldersWhen selected, additional options are presented to define the scan depth and scan error handling.
Scanning depthThe number of subfolder levels, under the parent folder, the action will scan within. e.g. "1" will scan through the
subfolders found directly under the parent folder only; "2" will scan through the subfolders of the subfolders
(i.e. 2 levels deep) found under the parent folder.
Ignore scan errorsSelect to ignore any errors produced when scanning subfolders for files. This is useful for avoiding errors when
scanning folder depths that may not exist in all subfolders.
