Windows 7: Windows 7 is over-writing files that have a different file name

24 Mar 2014   #11

Windows 7 Pro 32bit / Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I am at a loss. I know using PSP the software seems to get confused, and I HAVE TO TYPE the sequential file name in full to prevent an over-wright. When I save in other software I can select a file, backspace the sequential number and advance it by one.

I do hope someone can get you straightened out.

Does it make any difference if there are spaces in the filename? I try to avoid them so I don't know what happens with Explorer rename. But it seems like you have some funky filename characters such as ampersands and spaces.
