any way to mirror files after renaming during import?

Post by fbungarz » 17 Oct 19 0:23

Hi all,
until now I have done this manually.
During import I use a script to rename my files and group them into folders according to date (..\year\date).
I then copy those files to a second drive for backup/archiving purposes.

Now, I recently thought, I might as well try out mirroring during the import and was surprised:
The files are placed onto my second hardrive that I use for the mirror, the same new folder structure e (..\year\date) is being created as part of that process, but the files are copied using their original file name. So, I end up with the renamed files on the original drive added to PSU's database and a copy on the mirror in the same folders, but named differently. Is there any way to remedy this, i.e., the files on both the main drive and the archival mirror drive being named the same?

Thanks,
Frank

You should set mirror naming to "Downloaded file".
