The following example demonstrates how to apply a redaction policy to all files within a given inbound folder, and save to one of outbound folders - for successfully updated files and for failed ones.

RedactionPolicy policy = RedactionPolicy.Load("RedactionPolicy.xml");
foreach (var fileEntry in Directory.GetFileNames("C:\\Inbound")) 
     using (Redactor redactor = new Redactor(Path.Combine("C:\\Inbound\\", fileEntry)))
             RedactorChangeLog result = redactor.Apply(policy);
             String resultFolder = result.Status != RedactionStatus.Failed ? "C:\\Outbound\\Done\\" : "C:\\Outbound\\Failed\\";
             using (Stream fileStream = File.Open(Path.Combine(resultFolder, fileEntry), FileMode.Open, FileAccess.ReadWrite))
               redactor.Save(fileStream, new RasterizationOptions() { Enabled = false });

The following example contains a sample XML policy file with sample configurations for all types of redactions.
