as per the subject, I need to keep attachments I am downloading that have the same name from overwriting themselves. i.e. 01.jpg and then I download another file named 01.jpg in the same forum, it overwrites the first one. I've tried to set this under properties:file copies but that seems to only work on duplicate files ( i.e. same byte length). Different files with the same name just overwrite each other. I'd like it to just add a (1) or (2) etc. to the end of the filename if it downloads a duplicate name instead of overwriting the file. Is there allready a way to do this?
That works to a point, but what I really wanted to do is save the AUXILLARY or Secondary name that is sent, which is the filename. Like file1.jpg . SkipDisposition drops that filename and saves just the .php filename. It works but I loose the file name. What I want it to do is if file.jpg already exists, then it should make a new file called file(2).jpg instead of overwriting the other one. I really want to save the .jpg and .zip filenames since I'm downloading pics and manga.
Maybe additional=DoNotOverWrite .
Would be much appreciated, because a lot of times there will be multiple files in a forum with the same name, like 1.jpg, 2.jpg, etc.
Could you please implement this?
It will add not 1, 2, etc. numbers, but a code that depends on the original URL. Please test it and let me know how it works. Thank you!

Oh, and something is wrong with your captcha software, I have a really hard time getting through the verification. It almost alway rejects me even though the numbers are right.
Just wanted to say, that I now installed 5.8 on my Windows 7 computer and I get the opposite behavior.
The first file to come down is saved, and the one downloaded later is never saved.
Just an FYI.
I just don't see them - it looks like all links have different names.
Regarding captcha - yes, we will work to fix this. Thank you!
On it are a few attachments that form a manga. One of the files is 06.jpg, kind of near the top of the page. On the third page
is another 06.jpg, its near the bottom of the page. There are a few other files as well I think, like 05.jpg, because I noticed I was missing a few pages from the manga when I ran it first on XP. This was the first test when it download the last files and overwrote the first files. On Win7, it did the opposite and kept the first files, but did not download the last files from the third page.
What would a diverted file name look like? Could you give me an example of what 06.jpg should look like when it was diverted from overwriting? Maybe I'm missing something.
What I always get in the end are the .php files that are 1K and then the actual pics which have the attachment file name. I keep the .php files so that OE knows what has already been downloaded.
I just did a experiment with the two 06.jpg files where I put both of their links only in a project and download them. Here is the project file:

I get both of the .php attachment files, but I get only one 06.jpg file. One 06.jpg still overwrites the other one.
Please leave me a link.
I've been trying it out on a mass download, and it looks like its working.
