File copy collision resolution (create unique filename) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, guys,

    Is there any chance of changing the character added for file collision resolution - the create unique filename branch?

    Background: I have a workflow which is started by an XML file and which needs to associate to an MXF file with the same filename. The XML is on a Windows 2012 R2 Virtual server and the MXF comes on a Windows piloted Synology.

    Problem: The situation might appear that another version of the same pair of files comes out, and in this case, the unique filename created as file copy collision resolution for the 2 systems is different: The Synology adds "_1","_2" etc. (result: <filename>_1.XML) and the Windows 2012 R2 adds just a "1","2" etc. (result: <filename>1.MXF)

    Question: Is there any way of changing the character of the unique name created on the Windows 2012 R2 server? Otherwise the files cannot associate and my workflow is stuck.

    Thank you in advance
