    I had a ticket open with Kaseya for ages on how to have the # in the file name to not be interpreted as a variable. No one could tell me it needs to be ##.  Tried " "  ' ' without any success.

    Thanks.

    Hi everyone, this one was tricky but it worked at the time it was uploaded.  It's possible something within the way VSA is handling the information is not working now after so many updates.  We are on Syncro now and use this same process with no issue.  We don't have VSA to test, but as long as the instructions were followed at the time.  It was working.  We had many in T+T who used this script with no issues.

    Best of luck!
