foreach (var fileEntry in Directory.GetFileNames("C:\\Inbound")) 
    using (Document doc = Redactor.Load(Path.Combine("C:\\Inbound\\", fileEntry)))
    	RedactionSummary result = doc.RedactWith(policy.Redactions);
        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))
      		doc.Save(fileStream, new SaveOptions() { RasterizeToPDF = false, RedactedFileSuffix = DateTime.Now.ToString() });

   System.Drawing.Point samplePoint = new System.Drawing.Point(516, 311);
   System.Drawing.Size sampleSize = new System.Drawing.Size(170, 35);
   RedactionSummary result = doc.RedactWith(new ImageAreaRedaction(samplePoint,

RedactionSummary summary = doc.redactWith(...);
if (summary.Status != RedactionStatus.Applied)
	for (int i = 0; i < summary.RedactionLog.Count; i++)
		RedactionLogEngtry logEntry = summary.RedactionLog[i];
    	if (logEntry.Result.Status != RedactionStatus.Applied)
