    Hi all, can I request a better naming convention for not over writing files in FTPdir, eg: "Originalfilename.timestamp.pdf" or "Originalfilenname_1.pdf"

    When we are receiving files via FTPdir, duplicate or re-uploaded files will rename as "upgrade.timestamp" losing the original filename and extension. This is very confusing. In an upload of 300 individual pdf files, the more recently amended, newly uploaded pdfs will lose their name and extension so we have no idea which previously uploaded file it is to replace. We do not want to automatically overwrite the original files (which is an option) as we need to know if an original file has been superseded by a more recent upload.

    This seems to me like a common sense request but I need more users to give this a thumbs up before the feature request is entertained.
