Why do I have to define an Exceptions folder?

It may happen that ABBYY Recognition Server cannot process some of the files dropped into an Input folder. For example, this may happen if a file format is not supported by the program or by the current license, or if a file is protected with a password. As the program is designed for automated document processing, such exceptional situations must not crush the system or block the processing of other files in the queue.

That is why you should define a special folder in which Recognition Server will put files it cannot process. Each rejected file is accompanied by a special XML result file which contains a description of the issue.

Exceptions folder also collects:

  • images that were rejected by the server in accordance with the automatic quality control settings,
  • images that correspond to jobs deleted by the administrator in the Remote Administration Console,
  • images rejected by the user on a Verification Station.
