Error Handling - Photo and Video Name Conflicts

Asked by Don on 2014-08-21

Hi - I have set the Add unique Identifier in the Error Handling - Photo and Video Name Conflicts section of the preferences, but Rapid Photo Downloader does not add the identifier and download the photos. The error log cites a name conflict - an item of the same name exists.

Do I need to add something to my photo renaming settings, or is this a bug?

BTW - Great program.


Unfortunately the error log is no longer available, and I am not sure about this, but it may be downloading the photos, but still reporting an error. I have set it to move the photos - rather than copy, so wondering if the error is while trying to delete the photos.

And I should have mentioned - am using Photo Downloader 0.4.10 on Kubuntu 14.04 using KDE 4.13.3

It will both add a unique identifier, AND tell the user there was an error. That's by design.

Um - okay. Has it always worked this way? What happens if something does not get copied over?

I think I'll just add a sequence number to everything.

If nothing is copied over then there will be a different error message. And yes, you should be using sequence numbers.
